Take 2: Packerland wrestling title on the line on U 102.1

The Packerland Conference crown for wrestling is on the line Thursday night as Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol hosts county rival Southern Door, Peshtigo, Kewaunee, and Oconto for a quadrangular meet.

 

The original edition of this multi-team dual was supposed to take place last week at Southern Door sans Kewaunee before Mother Nature canceled those plans. Heading into Thursday's action, Oconto and Southern Door have each already beaten Kewaunee this season, while Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol and Peshtigo have yet to wrestle in a conference dual.

 

In the week since, Kewaunee's 195 pound wrestler Mitchell Thompson won the Herb Tyler Invite in Sheboygan. Thompson pinned his way to the finals before beating Two Rivers' Chase Matthias with a decision. Four other Storm wrestlers placed in the Top Seven. Four Southern Door Eagles wrestlers reached the podium at Saturday's Herb Tyler Invitational. It was pin or be pinned for 113-pound Lukas Kallin, who went 2-1 on the day to take third as the top finishing Eagle on the day. Hayden Jeanquart took fourth at 160 pounds to continue his strong season. The Clippineers last competed two weekends ago as they took 11th out of the 18 teams at the Cutler Classic despite battling low numbers, injuries, and sickness. All of its wrestlers placed, but Spencer Madsen was the top finisher for the team as he hit the podium in third place at 126 pounds at the Cutler Classic. 

 

Tim Kowols and Lucas Stephenson will have the call on U 102.1 beginning at 4:30 p.m. with the pre-dual show before wrestling begins at 5 p.m. You will find the schedule of those matches below.
