REYNOL LIMON

Waterloo senior Reynol Limon lifts Sugar River’s Carson Loshaw during the 182-pound match in a Capitol Conference Quadrangular Jan. 15 at Lakeside Lutheran. Limon held on for a 6-5 victory, helping the Pirates to a 57-12 decision over the Belleville/New Glarus/Monticello co-op team. Waterloo also beat Lakeside Lutheran, 52-22, and Lake Mills, 60-9, to earn at least a share of the Capitol dual title.

LAKE MILLS

With dual wins over Sugar River, Lake Mills and Lakeside Lutheran, Waterloo guaranteed itself at least a share of the Capitol Conference wrestling dual championship for the second time in three years.

In a quadrangular held at Lakeside Lutheran High School on Jan. 15, the Pirates slammed Sugar River, 57-12, and leveled Lake Mills, 60-9, and pinned Lakeside Lutheran, 52-22, improving to 5-0 in Capitol Conference duals.

“This was one of the main goals we had at the start of the season, we won it two years ago and it’s something we wanted to try to get back,” said Waterloo head coach Thurston Schuster. “They definitely came out and were ready to roll.”

Waterloo holds a two-match lead over second-place Lakeside and even if it should lose its final match to Cambridge/Marshall this Friday, the Pirates (5-0 in duals) would ultimately share the league title with Poynette. The Pumas (2-1) still have three duals to make up.

Senior standouts Juan Alonso and Jonathan Aguero both went 3-0 on the night, splitting matches between 126 and 132 pounds. Alonso pinned Lakeside’s Noah Weidner at 126 and Sugar River’s Matthew Loshaw at 132 while receiving a forfeit to Lake Mills. Aguero earned a 12-3 major decision over Lakeside’s Sam Schmidt at 132.

“It’s definitely nice for them to get the opportunity to get out on the mat,” Schuster said of Alonso and Aguero. “They both do receive a decent amount of forfeits, so they take advantage of any matches they can.”

Also having a big night was Gavin Wright. The junior pinned Sugar River’s Jacob Walker and Lake Mills’ Tyler Theder while receiving a forfeit to Lakeside Lutheran at heavyweight.

Arguably the best match of the night occurred at 182 pounds where Waterloo senior Reynol Limon held on for a 6-5 decision over Sugar River’s Carson Loshaw.

“Reynol started down and had to battle back in the third period. He worked through some things and battle his way to the win. That’s the type of performance we need this time of year,” said Schuster.

“A lot of the things we’re doing now are trying to refine some things so we’re ready to roll once the regional and sectional time comes,” Schuster added.

WIAA Tournament Revised

Waterloo will host one of the 16 WIAA Division 3 regionals on Jan. 30. Sectionals will be held Feb. 6 but at a site yet to be determined. The 2021 WIAA Division 3 State Individual Wrestling Tournament will be held at Wausau West High School Feb. 13.

Up Next

As mentioned, Waterloo will wrap up the regular season Friday at home hosting Cambridge/Marshall. The Capitol Conference dual begins at 7 p.m.
