2017 NCAA Central Regional Bout Sheets 

DUBUQUE, Iowa - The University of Dubuque wrestled in one of the toughest regional wrestling tournaments, the Central Regional on Saturday and would send one national qualifier to the 2017 NCAA Division III Championships on March 10-11 in La Cro sse, Wis.

Quincy Kalkbrenner (Jr., 157 lbs., Lena, Ill./Lena-Winslow HS) won his first match by a fall in 4:57 over Coe College's Cody Fritz. His victory would pit him against Loras' Jimmy Davis, a re-match from two weeks ago. In the dual meet versus Loras, Kalkbrenner won 7-3 in a mad scramble. This time, a late attempt for a takedown or back points would fall short as time ran out in the match, ending in favor of Davis 10-7 and sending Davis to the championship finals. Kalkbrenner bounced back from his first loss of the season and once again face Fritz in the wrestleback for third place and the qualifying spot for the national championships. Kalkbrenner won the match by a major decision 16-4 to place third for coach Jon McGovern. The Spartans would place 10th with 43.5 points in the final team standings.
