Kaukauna Captures Fifth WIAA State Team Wrestling Championship

Kaukauna captured its fifth WIAA state team wrestling title with a 38-26 victory over three-time defending state champion Stoughton on February 20. The Galloping Ghosts and Vikings split the 14 matches, but Kaukauna recorded all five of the pins in the match to provide the winning margin on its home mat.

The Ghosts got pins from Drew Wendzicki at 170 pounds, Lucas Peters at 106 pounds, Greyson Clark at 126 pounds, Logan Stumpf at 138 pounds and Titus Hammen at 152 pounds. Four of the pins came in less than a minute. Griffin Bekish added a technical fall at 182 pounds and Jager Eisch defeated two-time defending state champion Nicolar Rivera for the second straight week with a 3-1 decision at 132 pounds.

Kaukauna had previously won four straight state team titles from 2014-17. It marks Kaukauna's 24th WIAA state title in all sports and 12th since 2014.
