Fort Calhoun JV Invite
The Fort Calhoun JV Invite was one for the books this weekend. Our team performance was outstanding to say the least. As a team, we entered 16 wrestlers into the tournament. Out of the 16 guys, we had 13 gold medal winners, 2 silver winners, and 1 guy with a bronze medal. As a team our record was 42 wins and 4 losses. It was one of the best performances I have witnessed. I am very excited to see what the rest of the season has in store for this team.
106- Dylan McCubbins won one match and lost one match, bringing home a bronze medal. The hard work in the room is paying off for this young man.
106- Kaiden Hinze went two and one with a hard fought loss in overtime. Kaiden has improved so much from last season. He has really stepped up his technique and it’s hard for other guys to keep up with him.
113- Griffin Rettele seemed to be in a league of his own this weekend. He won three matches capturing a gold medal, and I’m not sure he wrestled past the first period in any of those matches.
126- Logan Ferris is wrestling to impress this season. He continues to be perfect on the year. He went 3-0 on the weekend bringing home his second gold in two tournaments.
132- Creighton Caniglia had a great first performance of the year. He went 3-0 winning his side of the bracket. Creighton wrestled awesome and didn’t have a close match all day.
132- Austin Sloger also had a brilliant first performance of the year. He went 3-0 as well, winning his side of the bracket. Sloger ran into one tough match but his conditioning out lasted his opponent, winning him the match.
138- Cody Naidas our head throwing 138 pounder. We told Cody he couldn’t resort to his famous head throw until he was in trouble at the end of the 3rdperiod. Cody found other ways to win his bracket this weekend.
145- JJ Latenser has wrestled great in his first two tournaments of the year. His only tough match was against Shane Quandt. The match came down to the wire and JJ lost it at the very end. He ended his day 2-1 with a silver medal.
145- Shane Quandt has been wrestling great so far this season. His first two matches on Saturday were quick and easy for him. His last match of the day for first place was against JJ. That one was a great match to watch, with Shane winning it in the final seconds.
152- Tyler Woodward improves every week. His hard work and dedication to the sport has really paid off for him. This weekend Tyler went 3-0 in his side of the 152 bracket, bringing home a gold medal.
152- Barrett Hermanson wrestled a tough tournament and brought home a gold medal.
160- Seth Rakes was 3-0 on the weekend. He made quick work of the first two kids he wrestled, then finally in his 3rdmatch of the day, he had a kid that pushed his conditioning a little bit.
170- Will Leavitt made a lot of improvements from his freshman year to his sophomore year. Will put a full 6 minute match together for his finals match to beat a kid that he probably wouldn’t have hung with last year and brought home gold.
182- Garrett Grossman put on an awesome Saturday performance winning three matches and bringing home a gold. Garrett was a man on a mission this weekend, not allowing any of his matches to be close.
220- Connor Hoy is a guy that has an extremely bright future for the Millard South Wrestling Program. This guy works his tail off each night in the wrestling room and doesn’t ever complain. He also brought home a gold medal without having a close match.
285- Beau Wendt had a tough bracket this weekend, winning two matches and losing one. One of his matches went into overtime and Beau scored a late takedown to win the match. A little more conditioning and Beau will be competing with the best of them.
