After Grant Englebert started the evening off for Southern Door with a first period pin at 138 pounds, the Kewaunee wrestling team would collect eight straight decisions in a 63-16 rout Friday night. The Storm rattled off three straight first pins by Jesse Steinhorst, Dylan Steinhorst and Logan Kubetz. Brock Duescher received a 8-0 major decision over senior Eagles wrestler Caleb Buchberger at 182 pounds before Paul Wery pinned Santtu Kiljunen at 285 pounds with a pair of forfeits in between. The Eagles would get their last points of the evening from Kyle Conard on a major decision over Elena Lewis and from Griffin Slezewski on a pin of Austin Veeser. Following Jack Severin’s technical fall of Southern Door’s Ben Kielar, the Storm ended the evening with a pair of pins by Cam Konop and Cam Hanrahan.
As a result of the night’s match Kewaunee is the conference champion, going undefeated in Packerland Conference duals. The Storm and the Eagles will meet again next weekend the WIAA Regional Tournament. All-Conference teams will be named at a later date.
