Nearly 70 wrestling teams competed at the Bi-State Classic meet in La Crosse, Wisconsin, last week, including the Caledonia/Houston Warriors.

For team scores, wrestling programs were divided into three divisions, based on school size. Division 1 included 22 teams, and was won by Marshfield. Division 2 listed 26 teams, and Caledonia/Houston took fourth place in that group, which was won by Luxemburg-Casco. Division 3, with 21 teams, was won by Aquinas.

Wrestlers competed for the top 12 places in their weight classes. Each class included a large field of competitors, ranging from 48 grapplers at 113 pounds to 62 entrants at 132.

Warrior senior Brandon Ross arrived with a record of 10-0, and took second place at 126 pounds, scoring multiple pins while advancing to the championship match. Teammate Owen Denstad arrived at 8-0, and took fifth at 132. Isaac Blocker (11-0) took sixth place at 138, while teammate Ayden Goetzinger (8-2) also took sixth at 195.
