For the second straight year, the Central College wrestling team finished second in the 11-team field at the Milwaukee School of Engineering Invitational Saturday. 

The Dutch scored 107 points and had 11 placewinners. Wisconsin-Oshkosh won the tournament with 163 points and St. Olaf placed third with 94. 

Leading the way for Central were Joseph Atwell at 157 pounds and Jake Crawford at 285, as both wrestlers finished second in their respective classes. 

Central travels to Indianola Thursday for a double dual hosted by Simpson that will put the Dutch up against a pair of Illinois schools – Augustana and Knox.
