The third time would prove to be a charm, as the Prairie du Chien Wrestling Blackhawks traveled to Lodi on Tuesday evening to Team Sectionals with a berth to the Team State Tournament on the line. In 2018, PDC was defeated by Lodi at Team Sectionals in the semifinal round and in 2019 PDC was defeated by GET/Mel-Min in the Team Sectional finals. This year would prove to be different. After advancing to Team Sectionals by virtue their regional victory on Saturday, PDC would have much to celebrate at Lodi!
