I can not believe that the final week of the season is upon us! It seems like it was yesterday and it was November. Where did the season go? There are certain seasons, that towards the end, you are ready for it to be over. This is not one of those seasons, I don’t want it to end and would love to keep going to practice after school everyday (my wife might have a different opinion). These wrestlers truly are a special group.
We had another successful weekend at the Individual Section Tournament. The tournament finished with us qualifying 6 individuals for the State Tournament (that is one shy of the record set last year) and had many others with great showings. Overall, we entered 13 wrestlers into the tournament and all 13 placed(which ties the most in program history)! 12 were in the top 4 of their weight class, which is a new program record!! We had 5 Champions, 1 Runner Up, 1 3rd place, 5 4th Place and 1 5th place finisher. The 5 Section Champions are a program record. Taylor Venz became the first Tiger Wrestler to win 4 Section Titles!!!
Freshman Trayton Anderson won the 106 section title and will be making his 1st Trip to the State Tournament. Trayton is the 6 seed in his bracket at State.
Senior Victor Gliva was the 113 Section Champ and will be making his 3rd Trip to the State Tournament. Victor is seeded #4 in his bracket. He was the State Runner Up at 106 last year.
Senior Jamin LeDuc will be making his 4th State appearance after winning the 132 Title. Jamin is the #5 seed at State.
Junior Eric Heusbourg took 2nd at 160 and will be making his first State appearance!!!
