On Thursday, Feb. 11, the WSWWW wrestling squad traveled to Howard for a triangular with Howard and Huron, and they came home with two more wins under their belts. Both opposing teams proved to be tough opponents for WSWWW as the final scores for both duals were two of the closest they’ve had this season. The final score against Howard was WSWWW 36, Howard 31, and the final score against Huron was WSWWW 45, Huron 34. 

  Thursday’s triangular was the last of the regular season for the wrestlers, and they finished with a team dual record of 15-3. Their success in team duals seats them in fifth place among the B schools in the state, which qualifies them for the State Team Duals Tournament during the weekend of the individual tournament, Feb. 25-27 in Rapid City. Only the top eight teams qualify.

The Region Tournament will be this Saturday, Feb. 20 in Wagner starting at 10 a.m. The top four wrestlers in each weight class will advance as individuals to the State Wrestling Tournament the following weekend.

On Tuesday, Feb. 9, the Blackhawks basketball teams traveled to Iroquois for a doubleheader against the Iroquois/Doland (I/D) Chiefs. The JV girls started the games with the first Blackhawk win for the night and a final score of SCW 47, I/D 12.

The SCW junior varsity boys also had a good game, ending with a final score of 38-15 and a win for the young Blackhawks.

The varsity Lady Blackhawks played next. Their game ended in an easy win and a final score of SCW 56, I/D 35.

The Blackhawk varsity boys finished the sweep for the Blackhawks with a win over the Chiefs and a final score of SCW 61, I/D 41.

On Friday, Feb. 12, the Highmore-Harrold (H-H) Pirates came to Woonsocket for a doubleheader. The first game consisted of the SCW junior varsity girls running away with the win with a final score of SCW 42, H-H 17.

The junior varsity boys were up next and faced a tough Highmore-Harrold team. The JV boys ended with a loss and a final score of SCW 23, H-H 45.

The varsity girls had battled with Highmore-Harrold earlier this season in the 281 Conference Championship game, where the Lady Blackhawks came home with a tough loss with just a three-point deficit. Friday night’s game was another hard-fought competition between the two good teams, and the Lady Blackhawks just couldn’t quite finish on top again, as they suffered a close loss with a final score of SCW 52, H-H 56.

The varsity Blackhawks worked hard together as a team against Highmore-Harrold, but they just couldn’t overpower the Pirates, and they lost with a final score of SCW 44, H-H 53.

The Blackhawks’ next court action was on Monday, Feb. 15 in Huron against James Valley Christian. They then play on Thursday, Feb. 18 (tonight), when they go to Mitchell for a doubleheader against Mitchell Christian. The Lady Blackhawks start their Region Tournament play on Monday, Feb. 22. The boys have their last regular season game against Wessington Springs next Friday, Feb. 26 in Forestburg. Currently, the boys have a season record of 6-11 and the ladies have a record of 9-9.
