Gopher Wrestling Posts Best Finish Ever

If someone had told the Chatfield wrestling team that they’d end the 2012-2013 season with a win, the Gophers would’ve naturally been ‘all-in on that one.’ A third place finish probably wasn’t their dream, but it’s certainly special. It’s the best finish the school has ever had in wrestling. It might also be just the beginning. The Gophers (5-seed, 29-1), who finished the season ranked #8 in Class A, opened with a contest versus Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunberg (4-seed, 16-2), ranked #4. Chatfield made hay from 120-145, getting five straight wins from #5 at 120 Hank Friederichs (10-2 MD), #4 at 126 A.J. Riley (4-1 over #2 Cody Peters), #3 at 132 Harvey Friederichs (4-1), #5 at 138 Alex Haffner (12-3 MD), and Ryan Meeker (7-3). The Gophers built a 23-3 lead. A trio of K-M-S falls reduced the lead to 23-21. Cody Bly (182; pin), Jacob Bleess (220; a big 7-6 decision over #8 at 195 Chase Norton), and #7 at 195 Justin Viss (285; pin) then cemented things with three wins. Chat downed K-M-S 38-24.

That put the Gophers up against Jackson County Central (21-2), the #1 seed. JCC spent the entire season ranked #1 in Class A. After 132, things were deadlocked at 9 points apiece. An Alex Haffner 6-4-decision win at 138 gave Chatfield a brief 12-9 lead. JCC then rolled out their studs (two #1’s, a #2, and a #4). They racked up six points in five straight matches, taking in insurmountable 39-12 lead. Chatfield won the final three weights and fell to the eventual state champions 39-25.

The loss put Chatfield in the 3rd place match with #9 Sibley East (23-9). The Gophers beat the Wolverines in December (35-31) at the New Prague duals. The re-match was similarly tight. Chatfield built a 25-11 lead after 152. They then lost the next three matches to trail 28-25. A Cody Bly 10-0 MD (195) got Chat the lead back (29-28). Sibley East won 220 via TF (33-29). It all came down to Justin Viss at 285. Viss got a dramatic pin, and got his team the 3rd place trophy, 35-33. Hank Friederichs, Bly, and A.J. Riley were All-Tournament. That trio, 8th-ranked 106-pounder Jared Goldsmith, and Viss all went 3-0. The Gophers end the season a magnificent 31-2. Graduating just two seniors (Viss, Sam Fryer), it’s good reasoning they won’t begin next year unranked. It’s good reasoning they could make a return trip to state.
