For a prep wrestling program where the numbers aren't so large, a berth in the individual state tournament is very important. “Dual meet success is nice, but for where we’re at as a program, we need to get kids to Madison at individual state,” Prescott head coach Paul Johnson said. “Last year we had good team when it came to dual meets and we had some very good individual wrestlers, but we didn’t get anyone to Madison and it was disappointing.

EPC won at Boyceville 87-68 and upped its record to 14-7 overall, 10-3 in the D-SC. The win probably gives the Wolves the second seed in their regional tournament which means a first round bye.
