Mitchell Breuer Earns 100th Career Victory!

Senior Mitchell Breuer has hit another career milestone in the Goodhue Wrestling program. As a junior, he notched his 75th win and 50th pin of his career. And now early into his senior campaign, he’s hit the century mark – 100 career victories.

He earned his 100th victory in the first round of the Chisago Lake Invite on Friday, December 14th. Mitchell is now in his 5th year as a Varsity starter. And of those 101 victories he now has, a staggering 61 of them have been by pin!

With 5 wins by pin so far this year, he continues to close in on 75 pins for his career as well. He’s certainly on track to do it, only needing 14 more. Mitchell has pinned 15 or more opponents in each of the past two years, and pinned 12 as a freshman.

Congratulations Mitchell on 100 victories, and to the many more you’ll earn in your last two months of your career!

Triangular rescheduled to Feb. 8

The Thursday, December 20th triangular that was cancelled due to schools being closed on account of the snowstorm has now been rescheduled.

We will now wrestle La Crescent and Stewartville on Friday, February 8th. The girls basketball games against Triton that were to take place that evening have been moved back one night to Thursday night to accommodate everyone’s schedule. We hope to see you then!

Triangular postponed

Our first home event of the 2012-13 season has been postponed due to the weather-related school cancellations today. We will not practice today either. Assuming we are in school tomorrow, we will practice after school for an hour just as we had planned before.

The triangular with Stewartville and La Crescent has been postponed. I will not know a rescheduled date today. I will let you know as soon as I do so we can update our calendars. We did look at Friday night, but there were gym conflicts. We looked at Saturday, but feared too many people had travel and holiday commitments that would create conflicts.

Goodhue Wrestling will not see any action until January 3rd when we will travel to (as scheduled) #2 ranked Kasson-Mantorville.

Home Triangular Thursday, December 20th

Goodhue Wrestling will kick off its first of three home dual events tomorrow night. Up first for the Wildcats is La Crescent, followed by a dual between La Crescent and Stewartville. After those two duals, Goodhue will complete the evening with its final HVL conference dual of the evening against Stewartville. Start times are approximate for the last two duals.

We will also be celebrating two Goodhue seniors for separate accomplishments… We hope to see you there!

5:00 – Goodhue vs. La Crescent

6:30 – La Crescent vs. Stewartville

8:00 – Goodhue vs. Stewartville

Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Notification

Parents:

Yesterday your wrestler should have delivered to you a letter from the MN Department of Health regarding a 7-12 wrestler who had a confirmed case of Pertussis. Because Pertussis can be contagious, the MDH wanted me to inform you and distribute a letter so you are aware of the potential symptoms and the protocol for identifying if there is a case. I’ve attached a copy of the letter: MDHPertussisNotification20121217.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please let me know. And, as the letter indicates, if you are concerned about your wrestler’s cough, please do see a medical provider as soon as possible.

1st Annual Goodhue Jr. High Tournament

In a few days we’ll be hosting our first annual Goodhue Jr. High Tournament. We are excited to have a great tournament right here in Goodhue again for our young wrestlers.

This is a Jr. High Tournament, meaning it’s only for wrestlers in grades 7-9, plus beginner wrestlers that might be older. Weigh-ins and skin checks start at 7:15 for Goodhue wrestlers, and three weigh-in windows follow. We will have a coaches meeting to finalize brackets from 8:30 – 9:30, and hopefully get the tournament started around that 9:30 mark.

We’ll be running 4 mats – two in each gym with 8 man brackets. We have medals for wrestlers who place in the top 3. We have 15 teams attending, so there will be plenty of full brackets and great wrestling to watch.

Concessions and set-up/break-down crews are in place. Thank you in advance to everyone who has been or will help with this tournament!

Park Duals Results

The Goodhue varsity team just finished up at the Park Cottage Grove Duals. The team went 1-3, falling to Chatfield, Kimball, and Stillwater before ending the day with our second dual win of the season by edging Tartan 42-40. All three losses came to ranked or honorable mention teams, according to the latest Guillotine rankings that came out Friday.

Here are the box scores:

Goodhue 21 Chatfield 51
Goodhue 31 Kimball 39
Goodhue 31 Stillwater 41
Goodhue 42 Tartan 40

Some of our individuals deserve some special recognition. 7th grader Mason Huemann earned his first Varsity win of his career. And senior Mitchell Breuer went 4-0 on the day as he knocked out his 99th career win. You can be confident Mitchell will be pushing hard to pick up his 100th next Friday at the Chisago Lakes Invite!

Logan Breuer easily gets the Match of The Day Award. Against Tartan, Logan was down 11-0 when he put his opponent to his back and pinned him with :03 seconds left in the period! Way to go Logan!
