Thursday, January 17, 2013 N/Warren Town and County News Page Nine By Tracee Saltz Tuesday, Dec. 18, the Norwalk Warriors wrest- led Grinnell and Roosevelt at home. The results of this dual are as follows: First, Norwalk met with Grinnell. The dual began with junior Kevin Onstot (182) from Nor-walk and senior Jack Leshen (182) of Grinnell. Leshen secured a fall in the 2nd period. After Onstot came sophomore Trystan Minnis (195) of Norwalk against sopho- more Anthony Clayton of Grinnell. Clayton secured another fall for GrinneU. Up next we saw Zach Swanson (220) with senior Austin Warrington of Grinnell. Warrington se- cured a 3rd fall for Grinnell. The Warriors were open at 285, so we had to forfeit that round to Grinnell. This gives us, at this point: Norwalk 0, Grinnell 24. Things do seem to be look- ing rough for our Warriors. So we forge on and send out Dylan DeFreece (106) for Norwalk to wrestle Connor McKay (106) of Grinnell. DeFreece successfully se- cures a fall for Norwalk and gives the Warriors a much needed boost. All it takes is one good pin! Because next we saw Michael Riordan (113) of Norwalk also se- cure a fall against Jacob Staroska of Grinnell.

Zach Cook (138) won the next match by forfeit for the Warriors. Which then brings us to a match that our Pierangeli (145) lost. This was a decisioned match against Tanner Murray (145) of Roosevelt. So the team scores thus far are Norwalk 24, Roosevelt 18. Our Warriors have fought their way to a de- cent lead over Roosevelt. Wrestling next for the Warriors, we have Rudolph (152) who secured a fall against Dan Lewis (152) of Roosevelt. When Rudolph was done, Saltz (160) secured us another fall against Chandler Thomp- son (160) of Roosevelt. We seem to be a little bit on fire now...so what happens next? Well, Warrior wres- tler Johnston (170) secures yet another fall for US against Reggie Jones Jr. of Roosevelt. That's what hap- pened next. Can we keep it going? As a matter of fact, Onstot (182) does just that when he wins a major de- cision against John Kluding (182) of Roosevelt with his 12 points scored. We then watched Try- stan Minnis (195), of Nor- walk, wrestle hard against Sawyer Kochel (195) of Roosevelt. Rochel won a major decision over Minnis in the final match of the evening. The final scores of the dual were Norwalk 46, Roosevelt 22. Feel free to double check my math. I was so proud of our guys I may have lost track some- where. Our first dual of the New Year took place Thursday evening, Jan. 3, at Pella. The Norwalk Wrestling War- riors first wrestled the fellas from Pella. The dual began with our 120-pounder, Onstot. Onstot wrestled against Levi Azinger of Pella who secured a fall, putting Pella on the board first. Zach Johnston (126) then came out and won a decisioned match against Chase Perry (126), Pella. After Onstot and Johnston came Ryley Smith (132) and Pierangeli (138), who took two forfeits for Norwalk giving us an early team score of Pella 6, Norwalk 15. Next we saw Hunter England (145) go up against Deadline for ads, legals and stories is Noon Friday ! LIBRARY HOURS.

After three grueling periods, Speltz wins a major decision over England. Rudolph (152) then wrestled Dillon DeJong (152) from Pella. DeJong se- cured a fall against Rudolph, putting Pella back in the lead on the scoreboard. Only briefly though, for up next came Saltz (160) who won a ma- jor decisioned match against Johnny Blauw (160) and put Norwalk back on top. Nathan Johnston (170) then stepped onto the mat to take the forfeit round as Pella was again open at this weight class. Our team scores are now Pella 16, Norwalk 25. The next exciting round was won by Onstot (182), who secured us a fall score of six against Bryce Dawson (182). Senior Erich Voitel (195) began his varsity wrestling season by secur- ing us another fall wres- tling with Logan Van Bro- gan (195) from Pella. We are looking good tonight. The next three rounds were won by forfeit by Zach Swanson (285), Trevor Baack (106) and Chase Fouts (113) bringing the final score to PeUa 16, Norwalk 61. Without much of a break, the Warriors came back out to wrestle Ottum- wa next. This round of matches began with Johnston (126) securing a fall right away against Chance Courtney,(126) from Ottumwa. It can't be easy to wrestle teams back to back for these guys. However, our guys sol- diered on and Ryley Smith (132) came out and gave his all for three periods against Wyatt Schlotter winning by decision over Smith. Warrior Pierangeli (138) came out to face Ottumwa's Juan Aldaba (138) and se- cured a fall against Aldaba. Following next came En- gland (145) Norwalk, wres- tling Karsten Van Velsor (145), who secured a fall for Ottumwa in the first pe- riod. We have team scores at this point, Norwalk 12 and Ottumwa 9. Rudolph (152) secured a fall for the Warriors in the second period against Chase Wood (152). The mo- mentum only continues for Norwalk when Saltz (160) won a decisioned match against Tad Howard (160). Then Warrior wrestlers Johnston (170) and Onstot (182) both secured falls against Ottumwa's Isaiah Cox (170) and Skylar Genners (182). Now the team scores are Norwalk 33, Ottumwa 9. It is impos- sible not to feel pride watching our Warriors do so well after wrestling back to back duals. Next up senior Erich Voitel (195) wrestled one very intense match against Levi Cobler (195) from Otturnwa. The match ends up being a major decision win for Voitel. Trystan Minnis (220) then secured a fall for Norwalk when he wrestled Lucas Lunsford (220) from Ottumwa fol- lowed by Kevin Childs (285) securing a fall or Ottumwa over Swanson (285). This brings "the team scores to Norwalk 43, wa 15. Baack for the Warriors lost his match against Alec Clark (106) after Clark se- cured a fall in the third pe- riod. Fouts (113) then stepped up and won a decisioned match against Collin McConnell (113). Then the final match was a win for Ottumwa as Jeff Cox (120) secured a fall against Onstot (120). This makes the final scores for this dual, Norwalk 46, Ottumwa 27. How proud are you of our Warriors? NORWALK INSURANCE SERVICES [,'.
