HS Wrestling: West Delaware Shuts Out Maquoketa

It was a good start to a grueling three-day schedule for the West Delaware wrestling team last night as they shutout Maquoketa 82-0 inside the Seedorff Gymnasium. The Hawks who will wrestle seven dual meets in three days moved to 3-1 on the season and 3-0 in the conference with the win over a shorthanded Cardinal team who fell to 1-8 and 0-3 in the WaMaC. Maquoketa gave up five forfeits on the night, but in the nine matches that were wrestled the Hawks had bonus points in all of them as Carson Turnis had a major decision at 145 pounds, and Brent Yonkovic, Logan and Jadyn Peyton, Kyle Cole, Will Ward, Wyatt Voelker, Carson Less, and Blake Engel all pinned their opponents. Hawk head coach Jeff Voss said he’s been very happy with the approach the team has had in practice throughout the early part of this season:

Coming up today the Hawks will compete in the Battle of Waterloo dual meet tournament as 32 of the state’s best teams will wrestle in four brackets of eight teams which based on the results of that, teams will wrestle three teams on Saturday that finished in the same place of their bracket. West Delaware is the top seed in Bracket C and will wrestle Waterloo West in the opening dual at 4:00 this afternoon and will wrestle again at 6:00 and finish the night with their final dual starting at 8:00. Voss says he really likes this tough tournament to close out the first half of the season because it’s a good test for the team:

Western Dubuque and Independence are also a part of the 32-team field as the Bobcats are in bracket A and will wrestle at 9:00 am, 11:00 am, and 1:00 pm as they will open with Alburnett, while the Mustangs who are in bracket D will also wrestle at 4:00, 6:00, and 8:00 and will wrestle Wapsie Valley in the first round. Stay tuned to KMCH throughout the day as Jamie Vaske will provide updates of all three teams from the Battle of Waterloo, and then on Saturday Jamie and Annette Lenz will be live on and the KMCH Sports 2 app starting around 4:00 for three duals.
