South Winneshiek hosted triangular action Tuesday night, Jan. 8, in Calmar as it took on a pair of strong teams, including No. 1-ranked Don Bosco and Sumner-Fredericksburg. 

Against Don Bosco, which is the third top-five ranked team that the Warriors have faced in the previous four days (No. 3 Lisbon and No. 5 Woodbury Central at Tripoli Invite on Saturday), the Warriors simply didn’t have what it takes to give the Dons a run.

With a lineup that boasts top-10 ranked wrestlers in 11 of the 14 weight classes, Don Bosco rolled to a 74-0 win.

The match of the dual went to the 220-pound bout between South Winn’s Zach Poshusta and DB’s Alec Carpenter. While the Warrior junior was unable to pull out a win, the match went down to the wire with a 4-3 decision.

The Warriors were back on the mat Saturday at the 53rd Annual Tripoli Invitational. In a field that included a pair of top-5 teams in Class 1A, South Winneshiek battled to a fifth-place finish with 118 team points.

“It was good to get back in action and see if we were able to execute some of the things we have been working on,” said SW coach Jacob Elsbernd. “I thought we began the day alright and competed hard to put ourselves in some placing matches. Unfortunately, I don’t think our team did a very good job preparing for the final round of the day as we dropped most of those matches.”
