Cade is the latest Lisbon Siebrecht brother to advance to state wrestling finals

4 Lions will compete in finals Saturday night

DES MOINES — Lisbon’s Cade Siebrecht has never felt better.

The 126-pound junior went into this week’s Class 1A state wrestling tournament at Wells Fargo Arena as the No. 7 seed.

He beat South Winneshiek’s Ethan Moldonado 11-1 in the first round Thursday. In Friday's quarterfinals, Siebrecht was matched up against Central Springs’ Clayton McDonough, the No. 2 seed with a 53-0 record.

Siebrecht beat him by a 4-2 decision.

“It feels good knowing I was the sixth or seventh seed, or whatever I was, and I took out the No. 2 seed in the quarters,” Siebrecht said.

Siebrecht’s seed didn’t matter.

In the semifinals Friday afternoon, he beat West Sioux’s Cameron Clark, 5-2.

Siebrecht has yet to give up a takedown in the tournament.

“This is the best I’ve ever felt,” Siebrecht said. “I’m in shape — I don’t even feel tired. I’ve been getting out from bottom and usually I struggle with that.”

Not only is he getting out from bottom, Siebrecht actually got a reversal against McDonough.

Siebrecht is peaking at the right time.

“I’m confident,” Siebrecht said. “I have to stay with my shots — I’ve been taking guys down easily, every time. I have to get after it right away.”

Siebrecht, a junior, will wrestle Underwood’s Stevie Barnes in the finals. Barnes upset the No. 1 seed, Beau Klingensmith from Woodbury Central, in the semifinals.

He has a chance to join his brothers Cobe and Cooper Siebrecht, who won state titles in 2019 and 2018, respectively.


“It feels good that I have the opportunity to join them,” Siebrecht said. “I have this year and another year, so I can get two.”

Lisbon teammate Robert Avila Jr. (145) is going for his third state title in three years. Avila, the No. 1 seed, has been on a tear to begin the tournament. He’s wrestled in just one match that’s gone past the first period and that was his semifinal match against Mount Ayr’s Trae Ehlen.

Avila beat Ehlen by tech fall in the third period, 29-11.

From the first takedown, to the 12th takedown, Avila let Ehlen up every time almost immediately after they hit the mat. When the action took the wrestlers out of bounds, Avila didn’t even try to ride, he just told the ref to give Ehlen the escape point so they could start on their feet, in the neutral position.

It wasn’t until the 13th takedown, which would have secured the tech fall anyway, that Avila kept Ehlen down on the mat and went for a turn. Avila got three backpoints and nearly got the pin but Ehlen was able to wiggle out of it.

“Dominate,” Avila said of his mindset. “I need to make sure these guys feel like they never want to step on the mat against me again.”

Four Lisbon Lions punched their tickets to Saturday’s finals. Brandon Paez (120) and Cole Clark (220) will join Siebrecht and Avila.

“What’s in front of us is that finals match,” Avila said. “That’s what we’re focused on.”

Cascade’s Aiden Noonan (132), like Avila, is wrestling for his third state championship after beating West Sioux’s Mikey Baker 7-0 in the semifinals.


Lisbon is in second place after Friday’s matches with 120.5 points, 21.5 behind Don Bosco.
