The Warrior wrestling team was back on the mats Thursday afternoon as it went 4-0 at the Upper Iowa Conference Dual Tournament at Riceville.

South Winn opened the night with a dominant, 72-6, win over Clayton Ridge. The Warriors earned win No. 2 of the day in a tight, 42-34 win over North Fayette Valley before downing Postville, 45-36.

South Winn closed out the day with a 54-24 win over Riceville to complete the day, giving the Warriors a 4-0 mark. Also finishing 4-0 was MFL/MarMac, making for a showdown between the Warriors and Bulldogs on Thursday night in Calmar.

“We were fortunate to win all dual's last night and really needed some kids to step up to win the NFV dual especially,” said coach Jacob Elsbernd following the strong showing. “We had 4 varsity guys out of the lineup, so a couple others got a chance to fill in and help their team out. In previous years we might not have had the depth to insert JV kids into the lineup and may have had to forfeit some weight classes. This is a good example of why every kid in our program is so important and why the kids need to continue working hard to get each other better.”

The highlight of the day came when South Winn senior Zach Taylor earned his 100th career victory. Taylor joins his sister, Felicity, as the second set of siblings to reach the 100-win mark in a Warrior singlet as brothers Landers and Manning Kuboushek were the first.
