The Storm Lake High wrestling team split a pair of dual meets on its home mat Tuesday, edging MOC/Floyd Valley 42-30 but losing to Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn 49-23.
"We were happy to get a win in our first meet and there were some exciting matches down the stretch in our second meet that we didn't wrestle well in," said SLHS coach Ty Seaman.
"We failed to get a good start from the down position; we need a better first move," he added. "Overall, we wrestled OK but we need to pick up the intensity and wrestle hard for the full six minutes."
Seaman, meanwhile, will get his team ready for Friday's Lakes Conference meet in LeMars.
"We want to be at our best in that meet," he said. "It's not the most important meet of the year but we need to score at every weight to do well as a team. We hope to finish in top five."
The following are the results for Storm Lake wrestlers in the two dual meets Tuesday night.
