The Clear Lake wrestling team went 4-1 and won the Webster City Dual Tournament Saturday, topping some large schools in the process.

“To beat Ankeny, 51-10, and Waterloo West, 49-25, is a real credit to our kids,” said Coach Gary Weber.  “We also beat a very good Webster City team, 33-23.   What I was most impressed with as a coach was all of our kids moving up a weight class to help the team win duals. They are very unselfish and team orientated, which is a real pleasure to coach.”
