L-P graduate Siebert coaches Sandburg to state title

NT Sports Staff

Eric Seibert and the Carl Sandburg wrestling team have repeated as state champions.

Seibert, a 1993 La Salle-Peru graduate, and his squad won its second consecutive Class 3A dual team state title Saturday at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington.

After Siebert coached three wrestlers to Class 3A individual state championships two weeks ago in Champaign, the Eagles won three duals on Saturday to win the state title.

In the 3A quarterfinals, No. 2-ranked Sandburg beat rival and No. 1-ranked Oak Park-River Forest 33-23.

In the semifinals, the Eagles topped Glenbard North 36-23 and then beat No. 3-ranked Marmion 38-17 in the finals.

In his five years as coach, Siebert has led Sandburg to four straight dual team state medals, including beating Oak Park-River Forest 30-24 for the state title last season.
