It is officially do-or-die time for area wrestling teams as the WIAA Regional Tournaments kicks off this weekend at sites across the state.
In Valders, Luxemburg-Casco will look to defend its regional title as it faces some of the top teams in the state with wrestlers from Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol and Valders looking to play spoilers. Ranked #1 in the state at Division II, the Spartans will also face #7 Denmark, #10 Two Rivers, and #11 Wrightstown. Wrestling begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday with the top scoring team heading to Freedom for the team sectional meet. Top finishers will go to Oconto Falls next weekend.
Closer to home, Kewaunee will host a regional tournament with Southern Door, Brillion, Manitowoc Lutheran, Mishicot, and Reedsville paying the Storm a visit. WIWrestling.com currently has the Storm ranked 8th in the state. Wrestling is also slated to begin at 10 a.m. with the winning team heading to Random Lake for the team sectional meet. Top finishers will head to Dodgeland next weekend for the individual sectional meet.
