The 2019-2020 wrestling season came to a close for all but one member of the Waukon wrestling team Saturday, February 8 as the mat Tribe took part in its Class 2A Sectional Tournament hosted by Decorah High School. The Indians took seven wrestlers to the tournament, with all but freshman 106-pounder Jakob Regan having their season brought to completion as he wrestled to a 106-pound runner-up finish to earn advancement on to this Saturday’s Class 2A District Tournament at New Hampton. The Indians also got a thirdplace finish from junior Marcus Gibbs at 126 pounds, as he won his consolation match but was denied a wrestleback opportunity after his semifinal assailant was defeated in the finals. Sophomore 120-pounder Owen Malone ended up fourth after also winning his firstround match but falling in his consolation bout. The four Indians who were beaten in their first-round matches each had one final match, with three of those winning those final matches to wrap up their season on a victorious note. Two of those three were the lone seniors competing for this year’s squad, as 138-pounder Lance Egan and 160-pounder Nathan Johnson also wrapped up their wrestling careers with wins by fall to claim fifth-place finishes. Freshman Cullen Dickson followed that senior lead at 182 pounds for fifth place, while sophomore 170-pounder Caleb Block came up shy of completing an Indian sweep of those final fifth-place matches to finish sixth.
