D2 #4 DeWitt def. D2 #6 St. Johns, 45-22
A Capital Area rivalry was renewed and it was all DeWitt as the Panthers rolled to a victory over St. Johns.  After trading wins through the first four weights, DeWitt strung four wins together from 145-171 and capped off the dual winning three of the final four bouts.  One highlight match came between freshmen CJ Krum and Chandler Murton, two highly touted youngsters.  Krum took the bout 11-3.

D2 #9 Goodrich def. D3 #7 Mt. Morris, 41-30
This Flint-area matchup had some great matchups, although both squads were notably missing some big point scorers.  Although the dual featured five total forfeits, there were still a few good matches throughout the dual.  Hopefully the absences are not serious and both teams can get healthy before the postseason push.

On the east side, BWAC foes Algonac and Cros-Lex engaged in a back-and-forth affair that culminated in a six-point win for the Muskrats.  The difference came up top, as Algonac took every match from 160-285 with bonus points in each match.

D3 #1 Dundee 49 def. D4 #6 Carson City, 49-18 (Tues)
The rare Tuesday dual took place between top-ranked Dundee and Carson City.  It turned out to be a pretty good dual with some interesting results across the board.  Although CC-C lost the dual, they can come away with some confidence that they competed very well with one of the top teams in the state regardless of division.
