Wolverines fall to St. James and USC


Sibley East’s wrestling team ran into stiff competition last Tuesday. The Wolverines fell to St. James and United South Central in a triangular meet at St. James.

SE 24 St. James 45

An early lead wasn’t enough for the Wolverine grapplers as they were upended by perennial power St. James 45-24.

Sibley East led 9-0 after the first two matches. Adam Walters opened the night with a pine while Adam Bates followed with an 11-10 victory.

St. James won the next four bouts enroute to a 21-9 advantage. Wins by Joey Posivio and Jake Zeiher trimmed the margin to 21-18 but the Wolverines could get no closer.
