Lots to talk about here. Our last post talked about Joel Dutton’s Kenosha Tremper squad going 10-0 at a dual tournament last weekend. They followed that up by winning the two-day Mid-States Tournament in Whitewater by edging out runner-up Burlington by two points. Finishing fourth in the tournament was Mukwonago who is currently ranked 12th in the state by Wisconsin Wrestling Online. Tremper is not even an honorable mention now, but if they keep wrestling they way they have been the last couple weeks, it’s only a matter of time before they break into the rankings.
After this year’s Bi-State Classic, the power rankings have seen a small shift. New Lisbon has moved into the No. 2 spot while La Crosse Central enters the rankings at No. 8. Sparta still tops the rankings for the second week in a row. Some of you have asked where the rankings come from. They come from myself and Mike Montgomery. Yes, we are Spartan fans and supporters, but don’t let that make you think we are biased. Last week was the first time since the 2003-04 season that Sparta entered the top spot in the rankings as Tomah owned that place for the last six years. We try to be as unbiased and objective as possible and I think it has worked out pretty well.
Finally, be sure to check the website over the next few days as I work to edit and put up some wrestling photos from the Spartan JV Invite that took place yesterday. When I get results from the tournament, I will also post them here. I’m entering a really busy week so forgive me if it takes a little more time for me to put them up here.
