Luxemburg-Casco proved itself to be one of the best wrestling teams in two states last weekend by winning the Division 2 championship in the Bi-State Classic held at the La Crosse Center. The annual tournament features 60-plus teams from Wisconsin and Minnesota, and the Spartans captured the third most points (263) among participating teams, outgunned by Division 1 champion Holmen (342) and Division 3 champion Stratford (319). Five Spartans earned top 5 finishes including Lucas Joniaux (2nd, 106), Bryce Bosman (1st, 126), Nathan Ronsman (3rd, 132), Reece Worachek (4th, 152), and Austin LeRoy (5th, 195).
In Oshkosh, Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol and Southern Door finished in 52nd and 59th respectively in the 64-team Lourdes Academy On the Water Wrestling Classic.
Jeremy Jorns was the top finisher for the Clippers, earning five victories and a forfeit on his way to a 6th place finish. Griffin Slezewski was the top finisher for the Eagles, who did not officially place but registered three wins and a forfeit to make it to the fifth consolation round.
