Sixth place in 1990 ... Waukon High School 1990 graduate Dave Hansmeier is pictured above from a yearbook photo during his senior wrestling season, when he wrestled to a sixth-place finish at the State Tournament at 140 pounds. That finish set the table for the first-ever father-son State Tournament placewinnings for the Waukon wrestling program, as Dave Hansmeier’s son, senior Tristan Hansmeier, wrestled to a sixth-place finish in the Class 2A 170-pound bracket at this season’s State Tournament, with his father, Dave, serving as one of this season’s volunteer assistant coaches guiding Tristan to that podium finish.

Waukon wrestling 170-pound senior Tristan Hansmeier controls Algona junior Carson Devine in their quarterfinals match at the Class 2A State Wrestling Tournament Friday morning, February 16. Hansmeier pinned Devine in 3:15 for his second consecutive match victory to start out the season grand finale but ended up falling in his final three matches of the tournament to end up in sixth place in the Class 2A 170-pound State Tournament bracket. Being the first State Tournament semifinalist since 2008 Waukon High School graduate Frank Weymiller when he finished fifth at 189 pounds in his senior season, Hansmeier’s state championship hopes were ended in that semifinal round by the eventual Class 2A 170-pound runner-up, senior Kolton Bartow of Dubuque Wahlert. Hansmeier also becomes the first State Tournament placewinner for the Indians since senior Adam Benzing placed sixth at 145 pounds in 2015. Hansmeier joins his own father, volunteer assistant coach Dave Hansmeier, in being the only father-son duo in Waukon wrestling history to each wrestle to a State Tournament placewinning, Dave Hansmeier also finishing sixth in his senior season in 1990 at 140 pounds.
