South Dakota State dominates Dakota Showcase

SPEARFISH, S.D. -- The South Dakota State University wrestling team won all three of its duals against in-state competition Sunday at the Dakota Showcase in convincing fashion.

The Jackrabbits, ranked 17th in the latest Division I NWCA/USA Today poll, opened the day with a 51-4 victory over Dakota Wesleyan, followed by a 45-4 win against Northern State. SDSU closed the quadrangular by shutting out Augustana, 49-0.

Spearfish native Nate Rotert paced the Jackrabbits with three bonus-point wins. A three-time NCAA qualifier, Rotert opened the day with a first-period pin of DWU's Nick Woslum. Rotert then recorded a 20-3 technical fall over Northern's Diego Gallegos and closed the afternoon with a 14-5 major decision over Augustana's Clayton Wahlstrom.

Martin Mueller marked his return to the Black Hills region by also posting three bonus-point victories on the day. Mueller won each of his first two matches by technical fall before defeating fellow Rapid City native Aero Amo by major decision, 12-2.

Logan Peterson added three wins as he pinned his opponent in his opening match at 174 pounds, then came back with a pair of major decisions in the 165-pound division.

SDSU is now 3-2 in duals this season.
