One goal of the season for the STC Wrestling team was Team Regional Duals. They came one step closer than they did two years ago but ultimately fell short.

The Trojans travelled to Ballard High School on Tuesday, Feb. 6. The first dual of the night was between South Tama and Atlantic-CAM. To make the best use of their roster several of the STC wrestlers bumped up a weight class.

The adjustment started with STC's Garret Arp at 138. Arp beat Tanner Williamson 4-2. At 145 Tanner Probasco won by major decision, 10-2, over Colton Mudd. At 152 Colton Vest pinned Payton Fewson. Isaac Judge got a tech fall over Kenny Jimerson (26-11). At 170 Pedro Rodriguez topped Connor Pellett 2-0. Dalton Rosenburg stuck Marcus Duranceau at 182. Cael Kellogg defeated Cale Roller 4-2 at 195 and Mario Moncada pinned Devin McKay at 220.
