No. 3 (2A) Albia wins Lincoln Duals
DES MOINES — Third-ranked (2A) Albia maintained an unbeaten dual record by earning five wins at the Des Moines Lincoln Dual Tournament on Saturday. The Blue Demons beat Des Moines Roosevelt (61-15), Sioux City West (72-12), Bondurant-Farrar (58-16), Des Moines North/Hoover (55-24) and earned a 44-27 victory in the finals over Atlantic in a dual that featured a highly-anticipated meeting at 126 pounds.
The long day of wrestling culminated with a "main-event" style contest as Shadow Leshen, Albia’s top-ranked 126-pound senior, took on 2A’s second-ranked 120-pounder Darrien Schwenke of Atlantic. Both wrestlers, who also beat third-ranked (2A) Bondurant-Farrar wrestler Caleb Coleman during the day, competed in a very aggressive finale won by Leshen 10-4 to clinch Albia’s 5-0 day as a team.
“It was a great match to end the day. Both wrestlers fought off many deep attacks and ended up with several exciting scramble situations,” Albia head wrestling coach Dave Wenger said. “Overall, we had a great day. We really enjoy the team concept that dual team tournaments offer us. There is much more strategy involved in duals as compared to the traditional individual tournaments that we go to.
