-A A +A
By Andrew Harner

Two Vandals will for sure be wrestling on day two, and several more will await their fate.

Seniors C.J. Runkel (160) and Tyler Dagen (152) advanced to the championship quarterfinals after posting wins on Thursday, and the remaining six wrestlers will have to wait and see if they will advance to the consolation bracket.

If the wrestlers who beat them in the preliminaries wins in the quarterfinals, Vandalia's wrestlers will earn a spot in the wrestle-backs.

Runkel will wrestle Wilmington's Nick Hawkins, and Dagen will wrestle Durand's Gacob Lenox. The quarterfinals begin at 8:30 a.m. and will be immediately followed the first-round wrestle-backs.
