It came down to the last match, but Central’s wrestling team fell to Loras 20 – 18 on Friday night in the Iowa Conference Duals Finals. Tyler Lowy and Theron Stewart came away with two decisions to put the Dutch on top by one, but seventh-ranked James Buss of Loras won 10 – 6 over Jake Crawford to steal victory from Central in the final match. The Dutch finish the regular season in sixth place in the Iowa Conference, and with a 12 – 6 dual meet record, which is the fourth consecutive year Central has broken the ten-win threshold. All eyes are turning back towards Dubuque for March 2, when they host the NCAA Division III regional tournaments that determine who advance to the national tournament later in March.
