DeVilbiss named All-Iowa Conference wrestler

 

Jayden DeVilbiss, a 2011 graduate of South Winneshiek High School, was named to the inaugural All-Iowa Conference Wrestling Team. 

The 30-member squad is comprised of the top three Iowa Conference place-winners in each weight category at the NCAA Division III Central Region Championships. Luther placed seven wrestlers on the all-league squad.

DeVilbiss, who was a national qualifier for the first time this season, fell one match shy of earning All-America honors. He finished his season with a 29-14 record. He was named the Outstanding Wrestler of the Central Region Championships after capturing the conference championship at 174 pounds. 

DeVilbiss was one of six Luther wrestlers who qualified for the NCAA Division III National Championships.

It is all about the numbers when it comes to golf, and South Winn’s co-head coaches Paul Jungblut and Doug Schweinefus are hoping both are in the Warriors’ favor this season. With 19 boys and 14 girls ready to hit the links, the competition for the top spots has already begun.

Boys’ team

Having lost just two key contributors from a year ago, the South Winn boys’ golf team returns eight of its top 10.

Gone from the lineup are four-year letterman Nick Schmelzer and three-year letterman Jared Holien, but there are plenty of new members ready to fill the void.

In 2012, the Warriors swung through the season with a 9-3 record and took charge of the Upper Iowa Conference Meet to place first with 323 strokes.

Behind host Decorah and Crestwood, another Class 3A powerhouse, the Lady Warriors managed to claim third place on Friday in the team standings.

“Overall, I was pleased with our team’s performance. We were able to accumulate over 90 points, scoring in 17 of 19 events. That is a good start for this team,” said South Winn coach Kevin Kearney.

Despite cold, windy, and damp conditions, the South Winn girls managed several top-three finishes including golds by Abby Phillips in the high jump and Lexie Warth in the 100m hurdles.

Phillips, a junior, also claimed silver in the long jump and was a member of the fourth-place 4x400 team.

With a time of 12:09.23 in the 3000m run, Jessica Lechtenberg claimed the runner-up spot and later garnered a fourth-place finish in the 1500m run with a time of 6:03.84.

It took placing in every event to score points, but the South Winn boys’ track team left Independence Thursday evening with the team title with 159.50 points.

The 4x400 team was the lone event to score top points for the Warriors, crossing the finish line in 3:51.67.

Collecting second-place finishes for South Winn were Ben Meyer in the 400m dash, Alex Stammeyer in the 800m run, Garrett Bohach in the 1600m run, and Chris Brincks in the 100m high hurdles.

Brincks had perhaps one of the best meets of his career as he finished fourth behind teammate Jordan Rommes in the high jump and third in the 400m hurdles.

Aside from his third place in the high jump, Rommes bested teammate Jared Schroeder in the 200m dash to claim another third-place finish in a time of 24.88.

Boys open track season at Waverly

 

Boys open track season at Waverly

North Fayette finally got its outdoor track season started Friday, April 5, at Waverly. The Hawks finished sixth in a field crammed with Class 3A schools. Decorah edged the host Go-Hawks, 135-129.

Head coach Mark Nuss stated, “There was a lot of strong competition at this meet. In comparing the times with the Beckman meet, if we had we gone there with the girls, we would have done much better. However, it was good to get a meet in, and we got a lot of good experience against some rugged teams.”

In the medal race, NF brought home four bronze medals. Danny Halva (3200) and Colin Vagts (100) each won individual bronze medals.

Also placing third were the 4x100 and 4x200 relays. Derrick Kuehner, Derik Lau, Trevor Hurd and Colin Vagts ran the 4x100. The foursome of Kuehner, Leif Lujan, Zach Bruns and Vagts ran the 4x200.
