CAMDEN Jost brought home first place from the Powerlifting event in Salem on Saturday.

The first powerlifting meet of the year took place in Salem on Saturday. The McCook Central/Montrose Meet had lifters from 12 schools participating and 103 lifters overall. The Sanborn Central/Woonsocket team consisted of 10 lifters. Medals are handed out to the top three lifters in each weight class. SCW had six medalists highlighted by Camden Jost winning the 182 pound class.

Powerlifting competitions consist of three lifts: squat, bench, and deadlift. Each athlete gets three attempts on each lift with the highest weight recorded. The three lifts are added for total weight. Lifters are then placed by total weight within separate weight classes. 

The South Dakota State High School Powerlifting Meet is tentatively set for March 6 in Brandon.

The Wessington Springs/Woonsocket/Wolsey-Wessington wrestlers have had to make some changes to their schedule this year due to COVID-19. Because of the pandemic, the season started with only 10 teams allowed at each tournament on Saturdays, so each school hosting a tournament had to put the teams invited into a bucket and choose 10. Due to this process, the WSWWW wrestlers didn’t get to participate in the last two tournaments they were scheduled to be in. 

Because of that unexpected change, the team added a quadrangular to their schedule and hosted it in Wessington Springs last Saturday. They also traveled to Faulkton for a scheduled dual that became a triangular. In both dates of competition, the WSWWW team won their matches against every team they battled against.

On Friday night, in Faulkton, they competed against Faulkton Area and won with a score of 64-18, and they wrestled against Linton/Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock, N.D., and beat them with a score of 51-24. 

On Saturday, they grappled with Sioux Valley and won 55-18. They took on Deuel and beat them with a score of 66-6, and they took the clean sweep for the week with the final match against Groton Area and beating them with a score of 54-16. 

WSWWW has their next matches against Howard, Kimball/White Lake/Platte-Geddes and Warner/Northwestern in a quadrangular at home in Wessington Springs tonight (Thursday) starting at 5 p.m. Then, on Saturday, they travel to Gettysburg for the Battler Invitational, starting at 10 a.m.

The next court action for the Blackhawks was in Howard on Thursday, Jan. 7 for a doubleheader with the hosting Tigers. As usual, the junior varsity girls started things off, and they brought home another victory. Their final score was 39-32.

The junior varsity boys were up next, and they suffered another loss to a tough team. Final score was 16-36, Howard.

The varsity girls played the next game, and it was a tough, back-and-forth battle to the end. The Lady Blackhawks could not hold on, and they lost with a final score of 39-42.

The final game of the night was the varsity boys’ match up. Howard has an experienced team that has had a great season thus far. The Blackhawks worked hard but couldn’t bring home the win. The final score was SCW 24, Howard 58.

On Saturday, the Lady Blackhawks traveled to Redfield to take part in the Redfield Classic. They went up against the Dupree Tigers, and, although the Lady Blackhawks were ahead for a large part of the game, they couldn’t hold on long enough. The final score was SCW 46, Dupree 56.

The next court action for both the boys’ and girls’ teams was on Tuesday night for a doubleheader against Kimball/White Lake in Woonsocket. The boys have an addition to their schedule for a game tonight (Thursday) against Iroquois/Doland in Woonsocket. It is a boys’ game only but will be junior high, junior varsity and varsity games. The 281 tournaments start on Friday for the girls and Saturday for the boys.
