Camden Jost has his opponent in a headlock to work for the pin and the win in the Region 3B Tournament on Saturday in Parkston.

The WSWWW wrestling team competed in the 3B Region Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 16 in Parkston. There were 13 teams in attendance, with each wrestler working for a chance to compete at the state tournament this weekend. The WSWWW team finished in seventh place, which is a clear impression of how tough their region is because WSWWW has finished in the top five in all the tournaments they have attended in the regular season this year.

Unfortunately, the only other senior on the team, Henry Eichstadt, broke his wrist in his first match of the day, so he was out of the competition and done for the season, after performing well all year. WSWWW also had four other wrestlers just one match away from advancing to the next level, so things look good for next year, also.

The state tournament takes place this weekend, Feb. 22-23, in Rapid City.
