Jakob Regan has season ended with third-place District Tournament finish


Season ended with third-place District Tournament finish ... Waukon wrestling 120-pound sophomore Jakob Regan locks up control of Roland-Story freshman Logan Powers in their third-place match at the Class 2A District Tournament at New Hampton Saturday, February 13. After falling by just a 2-0 decision on a late reversal in his opening-round match with Hampton-Dumont junior Jack Showalter, Regan defeated Powers by a 9-5 decision in this third-place match but was denied a wrestleback opportunity when Showalter was beaten in the championship match to claim second place and the final qualifying spot for the State Tournament, leaving Regan in third place and finishing his sophomore season with a 27-8 record.

Waukon wrestling 120-pound sophomore Jakob Regan was looking to make a return trip to the State Wrestling Tournament when he competed in the Class 2A District 6 Tournament hosted by New Hampton High School Saturday, February 13.

However, that advancement to the season grand finale for a second consecutive season was denied for the lone Indian District Tournament qualifier by just two or three points in a couple different matches, as Regan finished third in the 120-pound weight class to have his season brought to a close, bringing the 2020-2021 Waukon wrestling season to full completion.
