STORM LAKE — Wartburg College’s top-ranked wrestling team encountered little resistance Saturday as the Knights dominated their half of the Iowa Conference Duals.

Wartburg whipped ninth-ranked Central 39-6 and then blanked Dubuque 50-0 and Buena Vista 54-0 to improve to 15-2 overall and 6-0 against IIAC foes.

Cross Cannone had a pin and two technical falls for Wartburg, Kyle Fank went 3-0 with two technical falls and a major decision and Brock Rathbun, Max Forsyth and Bowen Wileman also picked up three wins. Mike Ross had a pair of first-period pins for the Knights in his only two matches of the day.

In the other half of the Duals contested at Dubuque, Loras went 4-0 to capture the title, including a 17-16 victory over Coe in what turned out to be the title match.
