South Winneshiek hosted triangular action Tuesday night, Jan. 8, in Calmar as it took on a pair of strong teams, including No. 1-ranked Don Bosco and Sumner-Fredericksburg. 

Against Don Bosco, which is the third top-five ranked team that the Warriors have faced in the previous four days (No. 3 Lisbon and No. 5 Woodbury Central at Tripoli Invite on Saturday), the Warriors simply didn’t have what it takes to give the Dons a run.

With a lineup that boasts top-10 ranked wrestlers in 11 of the 14 weight classes, Don Bosco rolled to a 74-0 win.

The match of the dual went to the 220-pound bout between South Winn’s Zach Poshusta and DB’s Alec Carpenter. While the Warrior junior was unable to pull out a win, the match went down to the wire with a 4-3 decision.
