WHEATON — Augustana sophomore John Schraidt, a Riverside Brookfield graduate, scored a 7-5 sudden victory over Jack Lewis of Elmhurst Thursday night to claim the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin title at 285 pounds.

The Vikings finished third as a team with 52 points. Second-ranked Elmhurst had six individual champions and won its second straight CCIW team title.

165-pounder Connor Cummings, a Downers Grove North alum, was a third-place finisher by default after falling 11-6 to Elmhurst's Yousef Al-Ghoul (Glenbard East) in the semis.
