HS Wrestling: West Delaware Sweeps WaMaC Dual

West Delaware got its first two dual meet wins of the young wrestling season last night as they swept a pair of WaMaC duals defeating Solon 59-19, and Mount Vernon 48-27. In the first dual against the Spartans the Hawks fell behind early 6-0 but never trailed the dual after that as nine of their 10 match wins came by way of bonus points as they racked up eight falls to go along with one major decision on their way to the 59-19 over Solon. Even in the four matches they lost head coach Jeff Voss was pleased with the improvement the team has made since last Thursday in fighting hard throughout the entirety of the match:

Against Mount Vernon the Hawks jumped out to an 18-0 lead after three of their six pins in the dual and also had a technical fall and major decision in the dual as they took care of the Mustangs 48-27. The Hawks won nine matches in the dual and had 25 takedowns while only giving up 10. Senior Wyatt Voelker was responsible for six of those takedowns as the top ranked Hawk picked up a 16-4 major decision over 6th ranked Clark Younggreen. Freshman Brent Yonkovic added a big win for the Hawks as he defeated 6th ranked Jackson Jaspers 8-1. Voss says with a fairly young team this early part of the season is a good opportunity for some of the kids to learn the transition from JV to varsity competition:

West Delaware will now head to the South Winneshiek Invitational tomorrow where they will see 20 ranked individuals along with 2nd ranked in class 2A Osage. Although there’s only eight teams in the tournament Voss really loves the atmosphere the tournament creates for high school wrestling:
