Dominic Flock became just the 4th Eagle wrestler to claim a state title.  His path to the 160 pound state title included wins over Zach Reih of Shiocton, (11-5), Matt Nowak of Edgar (8-2), and an exciting 6-4 overtime victory over Mike Mergener of Coleman.  It was not east for Dominic, he had to beat the eventual 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place wrestlers.  Dominic finished the season 52-1 and will return next year with a chance to become just the 3rd Eagle wrestler to win multiple state championships.  Alex Dahl (2 titles) and Andrew Dahl (3 titles) are the other Eagles who have achieved multiple titles.
