The Central College wrestling team won its final home meet of the season Thursday, rolling up a 37-12 victory over Iowa Conference rival Simpson College.

TJ Peretti set the tone for the Dutch, scoring a come-from-behind 9-4 victory at 141 pounds. Joseph Atwell posted the only major decision of the night, a 10-2 win at 157 pounds. He’s 21-8 for the year.

With one dual meet remaining, the Dutch reached the 13-win mark, the highest season win total since 1994. The squad is 13-10 overall. Central closes the dual season next Thursday at the University of Dubuque. The Spartans are ranked 21st in the nation and outscored the Dutch 40-3 last year.
