Waukon wrestling team falls shy of the win column in busy 24-hour period of six duals

The Waukon wrestling team ended up having a very busy 24 hours to end this past week without a team score victory in six contested duals, facing some schools they rarely, if ever, get to see on the wrestling mat. The Indians fell to Charles City, 53-12, in a Friday, January 9 Northeast Iowa Conference dual at Decorah rescheduled from the previous evening due to winter weather. They were also originally scheduled to wrestle the host school at that same event, but both teams opted out of that match-up since they will be facing off later this week in another Northeast Iowa Conference dual meet in Waukon and each also had a full tournament slate the next day. The mat Tribe then came up shy in five dual meets wrestled at the New Hampton Duals the next day, Saturday, January 10, falling to the host school, 57-16; to Southeast Polk, 41-22; to South Tama, 57-19; to Waterloo East, 40-26; and to Austin, MN, 42-33.
The Indians now hold an overall record of 4-12, 0-4 in the Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC). The Indians will next wrestle in a home dual with Decorah Thursday, January 15 during a Parents’ Night event before competing in the Decorah Tournament Saturday, January 17. The Indians will then host both Oelwein and Waverly-Shell Rock Thursday, January 22 for their final dual meet competition of the regular season before competing in the Riceville Tournament Saturday, January 24.
