#1 Wartburg dominates Coe 33-3 in Miller's home finale

Posted:
WAVERLY (KWWL) -

Top ranked Wartburg sent Jim Miller out in style.  The Knights dominated #14 Coe 33-3 in Miller's final home match as Wartburg's head coach.

With the win, the Knights captured their 21st straight Iowa Conference Championship, all coming under Miller's watch.  Wartburg has also won 165 consecutive conference dual matches.

Miller's squad won 9 of 10 matches on the night.  A pair of defending national champions, Kenny Anderson and Kodie Silvestri each picked up a pair of pins.  Anderson took out Tyler Endres in the first period at 133 pounds, while Silvestri needed just over 4 minutes to dispatch Tim Noverini at 149.

The match of the night came at 174 pounds when 5th ranked Dylan Azinger overcame a 3 point 3rd period deficit to rally past #10 Ethan Ball.  Azinger won the match on a takedown with just seconds remaining.

Miller's tenure as the Knights' head coach isn't over yet.  His squad now moves on to the postseason where they'll try and capture the school's 10th NCAA team championship.
