Wrestling Season Has Come to an End
By Sam Laue, Senior
The season has finally come to end, the wrestling season that is. The 2011-2012 HTRS/Pawnee City wrestling team finished their season with a Dual record of 2-4 and the best tournament finish of 6th place in the Malcolm Clipper Invite.
Our very own Nate Wiers, the only high school wrestler from Pawnee City School, had a very successful season. He ended the season with a 14-15 record in the 160lb weight class. Nate was chosen to be team captain, which was a great honor he commented. “Being a team captain means that you have to step up and help everyone out. If you have to lay down the law to the underclassmen to keep them in line, then you do it.” Nate also doubled his record from his previous year of wrestling. “He was a great help to the team,” commented coach Tyler Ferebee.
As far as the whole team goes, they only filled half of the 14 weight classes but they held their own at meets. Out of the seven members, four of them were Freshmen. The two outstanding seniors, TJ Standeford and Lucas Snethen, have made it past the 100 career win mark in the 2011-2012 season.
TJ and Lucas were the only two members to qualify for the State Wrestling Competition held at the Quest Center in Omaha.
“We had a very successful season this year. I think all the wrestlers have greatly improved,” added Ferebee.
The 2012 HTRS/PC wrestling season overall was a great success! Goals were met, records were set, and memories were made.
