The Waterloo wrestling team held Teacher Appreciation Night on Jan. 14. The teachers saw the Pirates pin Columbus, 51-30.

Four pins, one exciting decision and four forfeits led the Waterloo wrestling team to a 51-30 home win over Columbus in a Capitol Conference crossover on Jan. 14.

Juniors Jonathan Aguero (138 pounds), Joe Newton (145), Jordi Aguero (152) and Reynol Limon (160) all earned pins, while freshman Jacob Soter won a one-point decision at 126 pounds.

Jonathan Aguero pinned the Cardinals’ Owen Krueger in 1 minute, 38 seconds; in nearly the same amount of time Newton stuck Matt Fuerstenberg’s shoulders to the mat in 1:37; Jordi Aguero earned a third-period win pinning Ethan Hendrickson in 5:14, and in the third period Limon pinned Anthony Goelzer in 5:18.

In arguably the most exciting match of the night, Soter earned a 7-6 decision over Columbus’ Ty Cowell.

Waterloo’s Juan Alonso (120), Nate Broderick (132), Jakob Garza (170) and Gavin Wright (285) all received forfeit wins.
