A Pair of Pinfalls Closes out MVC Tournament for Hempstead

Dubuque Hempstead has been ranked in the top 10 in our dual meet team poll nearly all season, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they placed a wrestler in each the 220 and 285 pound MVC Championship matches. In the 220 pound match #9 Alex Freiberger took on #10 Dalles Jacobus of Kennedy. Freiberger used a couple of throws to take the Cougar down before earning the pinfall in just 34 seconds.

Not to be outdone, #1 Gannon Gremmel took out #6 Omar Begic from Waterloo East in the heavyweight final in 1:01. Gremmel used an arm drag and then worked an arm over to record the pinfall. The two victories locked up Hempsteads fourth place finish at the tournament.
