Anderson, Hemenway Win Wrestling Medals at State

OMAHA — It was a game of numbers last week for the Wolfpack wrestling team.

Five wrestlers competed at the NSAA State Wrestling Tournament over a three-day period. Two wrestlers came home with medals from the tournament which featured the best wrestlers from across the state.

“We had a good tournament,” Coach Doug Jones said. “The kids wrestled tough. They should be very proud of what they accomplished this season.”

On Saturday afternoon, senior Nathan Anderson, who had previously said his biggest high school moment was competing at the state wrestling tournament one year ago, completed his season by wrestling in the Class D 135-pound finals. Anderson and his opponent were tied at 2-all in the first period, then Palmer’s Dillon Glause pulled ahead and went on to win the match 8 to 2. Anderson wrapped up his career by winning a silver medal, his best performance ever at the state meet.
