Xavier High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Prairie claims 3rd MVC title in row

DUBUQUE - There's nothing flashy about the Cedar Rapids Prairie wrestling team, but the program has been built on bed-rock principles that stands the test of time.

The Hawks captured the Mississippi Valley Conference tournament for the third straight year Saturday with another workmanlike performance at Dubuque Wahlert.

Prairie won back-to-back MVC crowns in 1994 and 1995, but this is the first time in school history the Hawks have claimed three MVC titles in a row.

"It's really cool to be part of that," said Marcus England, who took top honors at 106 pounds. "We've got a strong team, we work together well. I'm proud to get another victory."

Prairie nudged Jefferson for the championship, 217.5 to 208.5, in a battle of rivals from southwest Cedar Rapids.
