PHS wrestlers rally to defeat New Richmond

The Prescott High School Wrestling Team came back from a 30-16 deficit against New Richmond Thursday evening and won 43-30 for the team's first dual meet win of the season and the first win for new head coach Jordan Poirier.

Prescott won the last five matches in a row, four by pinfall, to reverse the deficit. Getting those wins were freshman Joe Schulte at 195 pounds, junior Ty Sanford at 220; senior Dillon Kimmen at heavyweight; freshman Ryan Pederson at 106 and junior Ethan Tulip at 113. The dual meet began at 120 pounds.

PHS is 1-2 overall and in the Middle Border Conference. The Cardinals wrestle again in the Northern Badger Tournament Dec. 29-30.
