Toby Mosley, Jordan Stanek and Matt Tourdot led the way for Sparta taking home regional titles Saturday in Tomah. As a team, the Spartans finished third–13 points behind 2nd place Reedsburg and 27.5 points behind champion Tomah.
It was probably safe to say that not many people were expecting Toby Mosley to come in and dominate his Regional bracket in the way he did, but that’s absolutely what he did. The freshman 125-pounder received a first-round bye then wasted no time in pinning Reedsburg’s Lucas Johnson in 1:39. Next up was the championship match against La Crosse Central’s Cal Thornton. Thornton entered the match with a 31-7 record, but that didn’t mean anything to Mosley who powered his way to a 10-5 victory.
At 152 pounds, Jordan Stanek beat a trio of MVC wrestlers to win his first regional title. Stanek opened up the day with a tech fall victory over Alex Wilson of La Crosse Central before pounding Tomah’s Joey Organ 7-3. Organ defeated Stanek earlier this year in the dual at Sparta by a score of 4-1. Sweet revenge. In the championship match, Stanek defeated La Crosse Logan’s Cody Olson 6-4.
Finally at 189-pounds, Matt Tourdot received a first-round bye and then cruised to a 31 second pin in the semifinal round before defeating Reedsburg’s Cody Jasper 2-1 in the championship match.
On the day, Sparta qualified 10 wrestlers for sectionals. Adam Weidl, Derek McDonald, Toby Mosley, Tom Tourdot, Morgan Leis, Jordan Stanek, Brandon Brueggen, Matt Tourdot, Kevin Schmitz and Aaron Freeman will also wrestle Saturday in Middleton.

Sparta will have the week off as they prepare for the Sectional tournament Saturday in Middleton. The top two placewinners from each bracket there will qualify for the state tournament.
Speaking of state tournaments, Spartan wrestling fan Pat Stevenson was nice enough to email some of the results from the “JV State” tournament. Thansk Pat! Here they are…
Steve Stevenson won the 190-194 weight bracket with an 0:18 pin over a kid from Hartland Arrowhead, a 1:48 pin over a kid from Waunakee and a 3:36 pin over a kid from Cambridge to finish the season with a record of 16-1 on JV.
Derek VonRuden also won his bracket and so did Clinton LaBeause. Isaac Borreson, Xavier Lopez and Margo Degenhardt all finished 1-2 on the day.
