Viss and Bartels: Wrestling Coaches of the Year


Fri, May 9th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

On Saturday April 26, at the Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame Banquet, Chatfield’s Joel Viss and Travis Bartels were bestowed lofty honors. Viss was named State Coach of the Year. Bartels was name State Assistant Coach of the Year. Both of these awards are chosen from every wrestling coach, in every class, in the state of Minnesota. Chatfield’s twosome are thus the most honored high school wrestling coaches in the state, a humbling award for their hard work and their team’s dedication-inspired achievement. Viss had previously been christened Section 1A and Class A Coach of the Year, Bartels Section 1A and Class A Assistant Coach of the Year. The Gopher wrestling program won Chatfield’s first ever Class A wrestling title in dominating fashion in late February. The dream season came just one year after the Gophers had taken third at state. Congratulations go out to Coach Viss and Coach Bartels and all involved in the Gopher program.

Weather Warriors

It is a big shock for a Minnesota spring; the weather cancelled or postponed a great number of sporting events. Like last year (where snow was the culprit), activities directors were again put in shuffling-mode to accommodate a week-long batch of rain. The TRC baseball and softball seasons have been altered. North and south conference champions will be determined by the ten games played against fellow division opponents. Teams will attempt to play full schedules (two games against division foes, one against inter-division foes), but the former will be prioritized. All in all, the week featured Chatfield baseball, Abbey Loken, and a bunch of golf.

Gopher Baseball a Team Thing

Brian Baum’s Gophers have gotten off to an excellent start to the season. They’ve done so in workmanlike, star-less fashion. The most drama came in their losses, both by a single run. Chatfield is just one simple glove close away from having a lone loss (to superpower Wabasha-Kellogg). It has all come without starting ace pitcher Nate Skare setting foot on the mound. It has all come as a team effort. Through nine games, five Gopher pitchers had tossed at least seven innings. Five had victories. None of the seven pitchers to throw had allowed more than two earned runs total. The staff gave up just ten earned runs (team ERA at 1.09). Eight guys had three or more RBI’s (Tommy Jech 10). Nine had at least five hits (Jake Neis 14). Eight scored at least four ru .....
