Weyauwega-Fremont Middle School’s wrestling team recently completed its season with an undefeated dual meet record for the second year in a row.
The team finished 7-0 in duals and competed in three tournaments. The team won the Central Wisconsin Conference Middle School Tournament; placed second out of 21 teams at the Appleton Middle School Tournament; and competed in the 15-team Neenah Middle School Tournament.
The 2015 team consisted of eight sixth-graders, six seventh-graders and 13 eighth-graders.
“The team worked hard in practice to learn the basic skills of wrestling and competed hard in competition with a goal of winning,” coach Rich Tomaszewski said. “These kids were a lot of fun to work with and they really improved a lot as our season went along. The strength of this team was our overall depth and balance from top to bottom. We really showed the ability to pin people while not giving up pins in tough matches.”
Individual records included Justin Kempf (28-5), Carter Greening (26-2), Cian Fischer (26-2), Tyler Wetzel (24-4), Ean Marker (22-6), Jacob Kuckkahn (18-9), Easton Groskreutz (18-12), Keagan Thurber (17-9), Noah Greening (16-7), Austin Bartel (15-7), Adam Batten (15-11), Colton Reeck (14-6) and Logan Kicherer (13-5).
Three wrestlers also placed at the WWF State Folkstyle Tournament in Madison: Greening (second at 70 pounds), Fischer (fourth at 95 pounds) and Kempf (fourth at 100 pounds).
