It was a day of big tests on Saturday for the Wausau West wrestling team at the Ellsworth duals. The Warriors beat a pair of teams ranked in Wisconsin but fell to a nationally-ranked team from Minnesota. West beat Ellsworth 53-15 and edged Hudson 34-30 before losing to Apple Valley, MN 43-19. Colin Baine and Joe Umlauf were each undefeated at the tourney for the Warriors, who return to Wisconsin Valley Conference action against crosstown rival Wausau East on Thursday.
