SIGOURNEY — Six wrestlers went 3-0, two others were 2-0 and the top-ranked Prairie City-Monroe wrestling team opened its dual season with three wins during a non-conference quadrangular on Tuesday night.

The Mustangs defeated Bondurant-Farrar 46-33, downed host Sigourney-Keota 65-12 and blasted Pleasantville 62-18.

PCM went 6-3 in contested matches against Bondurant-Farrar. The Mustangs took two forfeits but also forfeited the final three weights at 106, 113 and 120 to make the dual closer than it could have been.

Sigourney-Keota forfeited five weights to PCM. The Mustangs (3-0) went 6-1 in contested matches with five pins and one technical fall.

Against Pleasantville, PCM went 9-2 in contested matches. Seven wins came by fall.

Seniors Jarron Trausch and Cody Wallace, juniors Seth Greiner and Payton Drake and sophomores Brian Nicholson and Colby Tool all went 3-0 on the night.

Senior Wes Cummings and freshman Grant Uitermarkt both went 2-0.

Top-ranked Cummings (5-0) won one match by fall and the other by technical fall. Wallace (6-1) recorded three pins and sixth-ranked Drake (5-1) and Nicholson (3-0) both won twice by fall and once by forfeit.

Greiner played basketball for most of his life before trying wrestling this season. He won twice by fall and once by major decision.

Third-ranked Tool took a forfeit, won by fall and won by technical fall to improve to 5-1 at 145 on the season.

Trausch is now 6-1 after winning once by fall, once by forfeit and once by an 8-5 decision. The decision came against Class 1A No. 9 Cael Lester of Pleasantville. Trausch is ranked fourth in 2A.

Senior Chance Palm and junior Jace Smith (5-2) both were 2-1 on the day with one win by fall and one win by forfeit.
