The Warriors were back on the mat Saturday at the 53rd Annual Tripoli Invitational. In a field that included a pair of top-5 teams in Class 1A, South Winneshiek battled to a fifth-place finish with 118 team points.

“It was good to get back in action and see if we were able to execute some of the things we have been working on,” said SW coach Jacob Elsbernd. “I thought we began the day alright and competed hard to put ourselves in some placing matches. Unfortunately, I don’t think our team did a very good job preparing for the final round of the day as we dropped most of those matches.”
