Sparta next sees action this Saturday at home as they host the Spartan Invitational. Check back here late Saturday night for full results or check out Trackwrestling.com to see results as they happen.
One week from today on Senior Night, Sparta will welcome back Lyle Blum as he coaches the Onalaska Hilltoppers during Sparta’s final MVC dual before the epic matchup with Tomah. In all likelihood, Sparta will be undefeated in conference action heading into the dual with Tomah and that January 29th dual will probably determine the conference champion Kind of sounds like another dual that also happened in Tomah about 8 years ago around the same time. Hopefully this time the officials involved will have a full grasp of the WIAA wrestling rulebook. Action Saturday at the Spartan Invite will kick off at 10am.
