State Tournament

I can’t believe it is over.  This is one of those seasons that as a coach you don’t want to end!

Our first trip to the State Tournament was great!  It was a great experience for our young men.

I am not even sure where to start or if I can put into words how proud I am of our team!  We are the best team in school history.  All other years will be measuring themselves against the 2014-15 Team.

We wrestled well on Thursday in the Team Duals, finishing in 6th place.  The first trip is always the toughest, because everything is new and you don’t know what to expect.  Our wrestlers handled it well!  First round we got beat by Prior Lake 36-25, second round we beat White Bear Lake 38-26 and then lost to Moorhead in the Consolation Championship match 33-29.  Trevor Frost’s match at the end of the Moorhead match was awesome!  Seeing the crowd cheering and team cheering, really summed up how great the season was!!! Victor Gliva, Jamin LeDuc and Taylor Venz were named to the All Tournament Team on Thursday, Congratulations to those 3!!!

The individuals also had a record setting performance.  Mason Hawkins went 0-1, Skyler Raymond went 1-2, Kyle Benjamin  went 1-2, John Walz went 2-2, Taylor Venz went 4-1 to finish 3rd at 145, Victor Gliva was 2nd at 106 and Jamin LeDuc was 2nd at 120!!  All Three of the place winners only losses were to the #1 Ranked Wrestler in their weights.  Congratulations to John Walz on reaching Career Win #75 at the State Tournament!!  Congratulations to Taylor Venz on breaking the school record for wins!!!

Records Set:

  • 3 Place winners ties the school record
  • 2 State Finalists is a new school record
  • Taylor Venz now has the school record for Career Wins at 158 wins.  I (Coach Olson) had the old record of 155 Wins.
  • Set school record for Dual Wins in a season at 25.
  • 3 Wrestlers with 40+ Wins
  • Qualified for Team State
  • Placed 6th in Team Tournament
  • Placed 5th in Individual Tournament with 62.5 point.  Last year we were 9th with 51 points.

Thanks to everyone for the support this year!  It would not have been possible with out you!
