Dakota Wins Battle Of State’s Top Teams


The states top two ranked 1A wrestling teams squared off in Byron Tuesday with #1 Dakota getting past the #2 Tigers 44-27.

Dakota jumped out to a 22-0 lead as Greg Krulas (152), Jared Packer (160), and Nate Oslen (170) all won their matches by falls, and Andrew Wenger (182) followed with an 11-3 decison over Brandon Elsbury.

This victory comes on the heals of Dakota head coach Pete Alber being named the Illinois coach of the year by the National Federation of High  School Associations.
