The Windom-Mt. Lake wrestling team took a big step toward the postseason Saturday. Despite having open spots in the lineup due to illnesses, the Cobras had 10 wrestlers earn spots on the medal stand at the Lake Crystal-Wellcome Memorial Tournament.

Two Cobras captured champion honors, leading the team to a third-place finish.

WML finished with 146 points. LCWM won the tournament with 238 points. “We had some open weights, and we feel that we could have done well at those weights if the guys were healthy,” Cobra Co- Coach Travis Elg said. “But everybody we had there contributed. We believe that we could have had another 30 or 40 points if we’re healthy, so we’re pretty happy with how things went.”

The surprise of the day may have been at 195, where Cobra senior Jake Junker stunned state-ranked Shane Nelson of LCWM in the semifinals, then picked up a decision win over Collin Pike of Pine Island to win the tournament.
