And just like that, it was over.

Middleton’s wrestling team didn’t get a chance to compete in a dual meet or an invitational this season due to COVID-19 restrictions. So the Cardinals’ first competition of the year came last Saturday at the WIAA Division 1 Baraboo Regional.

Unfortunately for Middleton, the season proved to be short and not all that sweet.

The Cardinals finished in seventh place at the seven-team regional and failed to advance anyone to sectionals. So just like that, Middleton’s year ended.

Reedsburg won the regional with 233 points, followed by Waunakee (226), Baraboo (213.5), Sauk Prairie (160), Mount Horeb (124.5), Verona (82) and Middleton (51).

The top two wrestlers in each weight class advanced to sectionals. Middleton’s top finishes were fourth place finishes by Walker Hargrove at 132 pounds and heavyweight Adham Elshaboury.

In the quarterfinals, Hargrove defeated Hanna Errthum of Mount Horeb, 14-6. In the semifinals, Connor Goorsky of Baraboo pinned Hargrove in 3:20. Then in the third place match, Reedsburg’s Colton Herritz won by decision over Hargrove, 10-8.

At heavyweight, Elshaboury pinned Baraboo’s Michael Byl in 1:10 in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, Verona’s Jay Hanson pinned Elshaboury in 1:18. Then in the third place match, Reedsburg’s David Finkel pinned Elshaboury in 56 seconds.
