Muhlenberg wrestled with a heavy heart all season following the untimely death of longtime assistant coach Jason Rute just days before the Mules’ first match.

team’s spirits, but the Mules hung tough after their 1-9 start, winning four of their last five dual matches to finish with a 7-13 record.

Sophomore Dale Mills and freshman Matt Loesch won Centennial Conference championships at their respective weight classes and advanced to the NCAA Championships in Dubuque, Iowa.

Loesch knocked off the No. 4 wrestler at 197 pounds at the NCAA meet and came up just one win short of All-America status. He ended the season with an impressive 25-5 record that included three tournament titles.

Mills dropped his two matches to the third- and fourth-ranked wrestlers at 149, one by a single point, at NCAAs to finish 26-10. He ranked second in the CC with 10 pins, two behind senior teammate Josh Carter.

Carter went 21-6 and, like Mills, finished second at two tournaments. Senior David Brown posted an 18-16 record at 133 and placed third at the CC Championships. He tied Loesch for the team lead with three major decisions. Junior Jeremy Hart went 16-14 at 141 pounds.
