Week two of the 2015-2016 wrestling season offered a much stronger schedule for the Waukon wrestling team, as the mat Tribe had just two duals on its schedule but was matched up against a pair of black and gold perennial wrestling powers in those bouts. The Indians hosted both Waverly-Shell Rock and Caledonia, MN Thursday, December 10, the mat Tribe falling to the Class 3A 10th-rated Go-Hawks by a 68-6 count before doing likewise to the Warriors from across the border, 42-26. The wrestling Indians then placed sixth at the ten-team South Winneshiek Invitational Tournament Saturday, December 12.
The Indians will now wrap up the 2015 portion of their schedule with another home double dual with Crestwood and New Hampton Thursday, December 17 before competing in the Starmont Tournament Saturday, December 19 and then breaking for the holidays. The mat Tribe will return to action Saturday, January 2 at the Central Elkader Tournament.
