Words from Coach Motquin about Saturday’s middle school wrestling:
After a strong team performance Thursday night taking home 1st place in our Talon Tussle duals. We continued the success Saturday wrestling at a high level with 22 wrestlers competing at the Appleton North Middle School Invite. This was the first year competing in this individual tournament. With 20 teams competing most of which we do not see throughout our season, gave us the opportunity to see new competition. Leading the way in 1st place were: Trevor Englebert, Gavin Geisel, Lukas Kallin, Braden Baun, Lucas Conard, Wyatt Wilke and Jerek Valley.
Next up, we will start preparing for WWF Kids Folkstyle State Qualifiers held on Saturday March 21st. With 8 qualifier sites held across the state, the top 2 wrestlers in their respective age group and weight class qualify for the State Tournament held in Madison March 27-28.
