Wrestlers lose to top-seed Kasson-Mantorville

The Caledonia/Spring Grove/Houston grapplers saw their team season end Saturday at the Mayo Civic Center when the Warriors lost to Kasson-Mantorville 65-3 in the semifinals of the class AA section 1 team tournament. The KoMets won their third straight 1AA title later in the day as they beat Cannon Falls 50-12 in the finals.

Called by some the best-ever team to come out of southeastern Minnesota, K-M won every match against the Warriors except one, at 152 pounds Jacob Swindell beat Andy Bigelow 1-0 to give C/SG/H their only points of the match. At 113 pounds Hunter Hauser-Caldwell lost a tough 2-1 decision to Jesse Johnson, and at 220 Blake Mauss lost 3-0 to Bryce Seljan.

The Warriors advanced to Saturday’s action with a pair of wins Thursday at Lewiston-Altura. In the semi-finals the Warriors rolled to a 67-3 win over La Crescent and then won a thrilling 33-26 win over Lewiston after Caledonia won the first eight matches and then held on as LARP won the next six matches, three by pin and another by technical fall before Blake Mauss beat Evan Bain 5-3 at 285 pounds to seal the seven point win for Caledonia.

Swindell’s 7-2 win over Tucker Speltz at 152 gave the Warriors a 30-0 lead, but L-A got pins at 182, 195 and 220 pounds and the tech. fall win at 170 to trim the lead to 30-26. Mauss came through with the big win at 285.

Against La Crescent the Warriors won 13 of 14 matches with Jacob Winjum (106), Drew Stemper (132), Swindell (152) and Victor Guth at 220 all getting pins.

The Warriors now turn their attention to the Section 1AA individual tournament Friday and Saturday at Rochester.
