Goodhue sends 4 to State, 12 earn All-Section honors

On the heels of a second consecutive Team Section 1A Runner-up finish the previous week, Goodhue Wrestling had an outstanding Section 1A Individual Tournament Friday and Saturday. Ryan Schoenfelder’s overtime victory in the last true second match of the event allowed him to join teammates Mason, Kaleb, and Kelby with a trip to the Xcel Energy Center this week. This is the 8th year in history of sending 4 wrestlers to state. Other years were 2017, 2013, 2005-2007, 2002, and 1997.

After a Section runner-up finish at 170 pounds last year, Mason Huemann succeeded to win his first Section Championship at 152 pounds. Kaleb O’Reilly bounced back from a close 2-1 loss in the finals with an overtime victory to return to the Xcel. Kaleb returns to state again after going as a freshman in 2016. Kelby O’Reilly knocked off the high seed in the Section semis before dropping his finals match to a talented Caledonia senior. But a strong performance in his true second match gave him his second consecutive trip to state. After going in opposite years, 2018 marks the first year the twins will compete together at the state meet.

To say the least, Ryan Schoenfelder had an exciting Saturday. After winning his semi, in the finals Ryan couldn’t hold on to a 3-1 lead in the third period, and ultimately fell in the second overtime ultimate tiebreakers. Forced into a true second match, Ryan again went into overtime, emerging with a 10-9 victory.

Overall, 13 wrestlers competed and 12 earned All-Section honors, tying Goodhue in Section 1A for most medalists. This sets a recent era record of All-Section medalists, surpassing 11 medalists in 2017, 10 in 2016, 9 in 2015, and 10 in 2013.
