The Waukon girls wrestling team continued its climb up the ladder of success this past week with a nearly perfect week of team results in both tournament and dual meet action. Despite quickly adding a rather large tournament to its schedule to start this past week, the Lady Indians still finished just a couple spots from an undefeated week as they placed third among 15 teams at the Dubuque Senior Invitational Monday, January 9 before emerging as the top team in a home double-dual Thursday, January 12 with a sweep of both New Hampton/Turkey Valley, 36-18, and North Fayette Valley, 39-18.

The Waukon wrestling girls are next scheduled to host Crestwood Thursday, January 19 before competing in the Decorah Tournament Saturday, January 21. The Lady mat Tribe will then wrap up its dual meet and regular season competing at MFL/MarMac Tuesday, January 24 before wrestling for the right to compete in the State Tournament at the Region 8 Tournament Friday, January 27 at Luther College in Decorah, details of which appear in a shaded box elsewhere on this week’s Sports pages.
