This season, the NCAA Division III wrestling world was made aware that the Loras Duhawks had entered the chat. In the middle of the Loras program’s rise to the top this year is former Mid-Prairie Golden Hawk standout Duncan McCain. McCain left Mid-Prairie as the school’s all-time wins leader with 163, the single season take down record holder with 161 and the career takedown record holder with 385. He was also a two time state qualifier for the Hawks, finishing sixth in 2015. As a sophomore this year, he wrestled in the 125lb weight division, compiling an 8-7 overall record which included four pins and one major decision. This year the Duhawks made their way to the top of the NCAA Division III wrestling rankings, beat Wartburg in Waverly 19-17, February 14th, snapping the Knights 220 consecutive dual win record and brought home the first conference title for Loras in school history, and a Lower Midwest Regional Championship. The Duhawks were the top ranked team in the country heading into the national tournament in Cedar Rapids before the season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In two seasons at Loras, McCain has a 19-13 overall record.
