Junior varsity wrestlers young, but growing

The young wrestlers are learning a lot from the varsity team.

“I’ve got five guys I can count on every day,” Nick said.

The five varsity wrestlers he counts on are Cody Pickren, sophomore, 126 pounds; Reed Yandell, junior, 120 pounds; Spencer Molenda, senior, 160 pounds; Matt Winkler, senior, 170 pounds; and Brian Yanhe, junior, 182 pounds.

“They’ll be in the medal round every time. I count on them to lead the young guys,” Nick said.

As for the varsity team, “they are right where I want them to be,” he said.

Molenda and Pickren just beat a couple of the top five ranked wrestlers in the state at the Capital City tournament last weekend.

Although the junior varsity is young, “the experience they gain now will teach them to be tough and disciplined … and in life in general.”
