The Grain Valley Eagles had back-to-back duals on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tuesday, they took on the Van Horn Falcons in a back and forth contest that came down to criteria with the Falcons coming out on top due to 2 forfeits by Grain Valley and only 1 for Van Horn.

The dual started at 126 lbs. with Freshmen Ethan Jones of Grain Valley and Cody Krantz of Van Horn. Jones scored a quick takedown and held control for the rest of the first. Jones started on bottom in the second and scored three quick points with a reversal in conjunction with a clasping then ended the match with 15 seconds left in the period.

The next match at 132 between Freshman Justin Deweese of GRAIN VALLEY and Junior Steven Campos of VAN HORN was interrupted several times with blood time and eventually went to Campos via Inj. Default with Deweese not being able to control the bleeding.
