Jacob Englebert Wins State Wrestling Championship



Reporting from the Kohl Center in Madison from the WIAA State Individual Wrestling tournament:

At 145lbs. Jacob Englebert of Southern Door touched gloves in the middle of the circle with a familiar opponent. Dewey Krueger of Oconto Falls, a 44-3 junior, won state last year as a sophomore and lost to Jacob in the finals at the 2014 sectionals. Talking with Jacob before the match he told DoorCountyDailyNews.com, “I didn’t come here to lose!”

It was almost reminiscent of the Ali vs. Liston fight, the best wrestlers of their weight class going toe to toe. Neither wrestler scored in the first round but with lots of movement, attempted shots, and impressive speed, the match was everything it was hyped to be. In the second period however, Krueger was called for fleeing the mat and Jacob was awarded one point. Krueger would then get an escape and end the period tied 1-1. It was the third period that gave Jake the knock-out punch he needed. He shot out from the bottom with 10 seconds left in the match to give him the 2-1 lead and the state title.

Southern Door has now won a state title back to back years at the same weight class, succeeding Colin Schubert who was last year’s 145lb. state champ in division 2. Jacob becomes only the 4th wrestler in Southern Door history, but the first ever to win it on his birthday. What a celebration it was as dozens of vehicles met the Eagle wrestling team at the county line with a BUG Fire escort back to Brussels.
At 220lbs.
