Settling for second seemed hard for the Lions to swallow, even though all but one program would happily trade places with them.

“We worked hard to get here, but this isn’t what we worked for all year,” Lisbon senior heavyweight Brant Baltes said. “It’s kind of a kick in the gut to get here and have this happen. Things happen and you move on from them.”

Top-ranked Don Bosco captured the first five matches and defeated No. 2 Lisbon, 34-25, in the final of the Class 1A state duals tournament Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Arena. The Dons avenged last year’s finals loss to the Lions, winning their third title in the last four years.

West Delaware Athletics Director Matt Weis might want to consider building a new trophy case.

The current one is going to get a little more crowded. If he needs help, Hawks wrestling coach Jeff Voss can lend him a few hammers. The same hammers who have pounded the competition all season.

West Delaware continued its dominant streak and captured a third straight championship in the Class 2A state duals tournament Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Arena. The top-ranked Hawks thumped No. 2 Crestwood, 49-21, in the final, becoming just the fifth program in Iowa history to win at least three in a row.

“It’s special,” Hawks senior 182-pounder Cael Meyer said. “Three years in a row. I love it.”

The senior class closed with four state duals appearances, finishing third or better each time. It was a perfect way to cap their dual careers.
