Wrestling Preview

Posted in All Sports

By Paul Trende

Chatfield wrestling starts the 2015-2016 somewhat anew. First off, long-time Head Coach Joel Viss has retired. Assistant Travis Bartels takes over. Seeded fourth, the Gophers fell to 1-seed Kenyon-Wanamingo in the Section 1A semifinals last year. A year after winning a state title, they finished at 19-10. They sent six guys to state though. Five, two-time state champion Hank Friederichs, state third placer Jared Goldsmith, state sixth placer Ian Morrison, Jacob Bleess, and Logan Karver, graduated. Section placers Ryan Meeker and Ethan Wright also are gone. And thus it’ll be a bit of a new, a bit of a young cupboard for Bartels. Just three of Chatfield’s 2015 Section 1A individual meet competitors are back healthy. They lost guys from 145 thru 285 pounds. Sophomore Jake Mandt (138) is the top holdover. Last year’s 132-pound section champ and state fifth place finisher notched a 42-4 record. He was 32-9 as a freshman. Another grappler with experience off Chatfield’s 2014 state championship team is fellow sophomore Maleek Hussein. Hussein just missed state a year ago, finishing third at sections (113) with a 28-8 record. Chase Ketterhagen (frosh, 106) is the only other healthy 2015 sectional Gopher. One key injury is Nathan Goldsmith (126), who went 20-17 as an eighth grader. Treyc Van Sickle (sophomore 120) and Austin Dahl (senior 160) nicely return the fray though. Each were a part of the 2014 squad. Treyc (27-11) placed third at sections, Austin (14-11) placed sixth. Cael Bartels (8th 106), Nick Lawler (senior 160), Isaac Thompson (junior 220), Nolan Salerno (sophomore 132), Jacob Stephas (8th 145), Samson Stephas (junior 126), Ben Ihrke (sophomore 145), and Monte Flores-Ruesink (senior 285) also have at least some varsity experience. Dahl, Lawler, and Flores-Ruesink are the only seniors. The Gophers have many of their normal wrestling dates, the New Prague, Park-Cottage Grove, and Stillwater Duals, tournaments at FCLMC, Lake City, and JWP. They open the conference season versus Wabasha-Kellogg.

GMLOKS wrestling had a very good 2014-2015 campaign. The Bulldogs won multiple individual tournaments and vied for the TRC title. They fell to PEM in the 1AA Section quarterfinals, ultimately finishing at 9-3. Three GMLOKS grapplers qualified for the state tournament. One, state Class AA 195-pound third place finisher, Wyatt Richardson graduated. Blake Benson (195), a would-be junior (30-5), is out with .....
