Busy week for the Cadets...since the last update, the Cadet sports teams have been busy. Following are some of the highlights.
- The wrestlers had their conference dual opener and lost a tough contest to Charles City. The next morning they traveled to Oelwein for a tournament and came away with a very convincing team championship with eight first place finishers, one second, one third, one fourth, and two fifth place finishers.
- The JV wrestlers also competed in a tournament at Postville on Monday. As a team, they won 16 matches and lost 12 with four champs, four runner-ups, two third place finishers and one fourth place finisher.
- Crestwood hosted a JV/Varsity reserve basketball tournament on Saturday and came away with the championship medals.
- On Tuesday night, all high school basketball teams tangled with the Oelwein Huskies, except for the 9th grade girls as Oelwein was short on numbers. All teams were victorious. With victories Tuesday night, the 9th grade boys have a record of 4-0 going into games with Riceville on Thursday night. The JV and Varsity boys have a 4-1 record going into the weekend. The 9th girls have just had 3 games heading into the Riceville game, but stand at 2-1 on the year. The JV girls have a record of 4-2 and the varsity girls stand at 5-1 heading into the Christmas break.
