The wrestling squad, full of fresh faces, has been busy lately competing in tournaments and duels. The team has had to deal with losing a majority of their star studded lineup from last year.


The Rams went to the Dan Hill Invitational on December 1 where they took home some hardware. Senior Logan Fornoff placed third (285) and Senior Nick Gill (170) landed among top three as well. Senior Brett Mower (182) and Junior Cole Mayberry (195) were both crowned champions.


Brett is performing at a high level right now and has some good offense going.” said Coach Asche.


On December 7 the Rams went to Council Bluffs for the Council Bluffs Classic where around 40 teams congregate in one building to do the same thing, wrestle. The Rams highest finishing wrestler was Mower, with a second place finish.


Glenwood hosted rival Plattsmouth on December 21 for senior night, however the Rams came up short losing 51-30.


The Rams are in a little bit of a predicament this year. For the first time in Asches’ coaching career, Glenwood has not one but two open weight classes.


“We still don’t have anyone to wrestle two of the weight classes #113 and #120 as of right now but the door is still open for someone to come in and be a varsity wrestler,” said Asche “This is different for me, it’s the first time since I have been coach that we have wrestled with any open weights in the varsity lineup.”


The Rams next competition will be at Lewis Central on January 3.
