Goodhue’s first 2x State Champion Bailee O’Reilly has verbally committed to wrestle for the University of Minnesota.
This is Goodhue Wrestling’s first wrestler to compete at the Division I level. Bailee was recruited by multiple schools and divisions. At this point Bailee plans to pursue a business major after finishing high school with a 3.5+ GPA. He also received a $1k academic scholarship from the Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Association (MWCA). On the mat, Bailee was a 6 year varsity starter, a winner of 185 career matches, a 3x state entrant and a 2x State Champ, winning the 152A title in 2016 and the 160A title in 2017.
The decision to compete for the Gophers came down to the traditions of success that Minnesota has had at developing wrestlers. “One thing that always drew me towards the U was the great fan base and all the resources they have in place for the guys who are willing to put in the work to be great and be remembered for years.”
The upcoming season will likely be a red shirt year. Bailee expects to compete at 165 pounds for the Gophers in open tournaments.
Bailee will sign his National Letter of Intent (NLI) on National Signing Day Wednesday, April 12th, at 3:00 in the wrestling room. Fans and friends are welcome to attend.
The Quarter Final round at state Friday night once again brought mixed results. Bailee’s opponent lost his quarter match 4-3 which unfortunately bumped Bailee out of the tournament. Joel wrestled a 2x state champ Austin Anderly of LeSueur-Henderson very competitively, frustrating him to the end. Down 5-3 with a minute left, Joel attacked to score but Anderly countered well and Joel ultimately fell 9-4.
Joel’s loss dropped him to the consolation bracket. In the late wrestle back session, Joel put lots of points on the board against his opponent, Hunter Sumner of Mille Lacs. Up 9-2, Joel got into a scramble that led to him sitting in a leg ride. Naturally a leg riding machine, Joel settled into a guillotine, and crisply transitioned into a headlock to get the fall in the third period.
In the consolation quarter final round, Joel needed to win to be a medalist. His opponent was Byron Byer, a senior from Frazee, and a common opponent. Byer defeated Joel in his first state match two years ago. With revenge in mind, Joel emerged victorious with a 3-1 decision. Joel Gadient is going to be on the podium tonight!
Joel wrestles next at approximately 1:00 p.m. in the consolation semifinals. Depending on the outcome, Joel will wrestle for either 3rd or 5th place in the 4:30 3rd/5th place round. Championship finals are slated for a 7:00 start.
The first round of the 2015 State Wrestling Tournament opened up with mixed results for Goodhue wrestlers Joel Gadient and Bailee O’Reilly. Joel, wrestling at 126, fell behind NHREG’s Cordell Peterson early in the first and continued to trail into the third period. Down 7-5 with about 30-40 seconds left, Joel went feet to back for 5 to finish with a 10-7 win to advance into the Quarter Finals. At 5:30, the quarters will start and Joel will face 2x State Champ Austin Anderly.
Bailee O’Reilly, wrestling at 152, wrestled a scoreless first period. Down 1-0 in the third, he gave up two take downs while in on his own shots to fall 5-1. He will need his opponent to win tonight to in the quarters to have a chance to wrestle in consolation tonight.
Congratulations to Bailee O’Reilly on earning his 100th career victory!
Goodhue’s 152 pounder has reached an impressive wrestling milestone – 100 career match wins. Bailee reached the century mark in the quarter finals of the 2015 Section 1A Tournament in a 4-5 seed match-up with a first round 4-0 decision over his K-W opponent, who he had lost to in the regular season. At the end of the tournament, Bailee had 103 wins and his first State Tournament berth. A family affair, now Bailee sits 8 wins behind his father Zach (111) and 23 wins behind his uncle Ben (126) on Goodhue’s all-time wins list.
Just a sophomore, Bailee has been a full-time Varsity starter since the beginning of 7th grade, when he won numerous one point wrestle-off matches with fellow teammate Joel Gadient. Three years later, Joel himself is closing in on his own 100 wins mark. Congratulations to Bailee and best of luck at the State Tournament!

Goodhue Wrestling will kick off its season with the HS PAC (Parent-Athlete-Coach) Meeting and Elementary Registration Nights on Wednesday, November 12th.
5:30 – 7:30 = Elementary Registration
7:00 – 7:30 = Nutrition Seminar
7:30 – 8:30 = HS PAC Meeting
The Elementary Registration Night information and registration sheet can be found at the link below for you to print off, or you can complete the sheet that evening at school.
2014-2015 Wrestling Registration
There will be a Nutrition Seminar for anyone interested – particularly for HS parents and wrestlers – that would like some basic information and straight-talk for supporting their nutritional needs as an athlete. Topics will cover high frequency questions and concerns such as basic nutrition concepts, what to eat, when to eat (training timing, # of meals, etc.), how to eat for weight management, and how to eat for weight gain. Other topics mentioned will be hydration and supplementation FAQ’s. Please consider attending if you are interested in hearing some thoughts on how to support your athlete’s nutritional profile as an athlete and lifter for maximal growth and recovery. I will be having a guest speaker to help facilitate some of these topics.
At 7:30, we will begin the HS PAC meeting to revisit yearly topics and reminders, as well as share new aspects of the program and season ahead.
On behalf of the Elementary and HS Coaching staffs, we hope to see you there! ~ Coach Grant ~
