The lights are on at the Mayo Civic Center! Getting ready for weigh-ins now. Goodhue faces #3 seed Wabasha-Kellogg at 1:00 pm on Mat 3! Winner moves to the finals on Mat 1. Let’s go!
In anticipation of the inclement weather projected for Tuesday, when Goodhue was scheduled to host Kasson-Mantorville, the dual has been rescheduled for Friday, February 5th. The normal dual times of 6:00 JV and a 7:00 Varsity start are still the same. The location will change, however. Because Goodhue Boys Basketball already is scheduled to host a game in Gym 2, we are going to try hosting a dual in Gym 3 (the new gym). We hope to see everyone Friday night to relax and watch some wrestling after digging out from the storm!
Goodhue Wrestling hosts its second HVL event of the season with Lake City and Cannon Falls tonight.
Round 1 starts at 5 and features Goodhue and Cannon Falls; Round 2 will see Lake City and Cannon Falls, and Round 3 will see Goodhue and Lake City. The Goodhue wrestlers have been dressed up all day and are ready to go.
As an added feature, the Goodhue Dance team will perform for the first time on our wrestling mats! Make sure to enjoy their performance between the second and third dual of the night.
In his final match of the tournament, Joel Gadient dropped his 5th place match 7-1 against Brendon Coyer of Osakis.
Joel Gadient wrestled in a state consolation semi against Kyle Hennen of Minneota. Joel wrestled hard but lost 5-1. As a result, he will wrestle for 5th place in the 4:30 championship session that will first feature 3rd and 5th place matches. Good luck Joel!
The Goodhue Wrestling program kicks off the 2013-14 season – the 50th season – this Friday night!
We are hoping to have a great home opener in a triangular featuring La Crescent and St. Charles.
Alumni have been invited to come back and enjoy a night of wrestling celebrating 50 seasons of highlights and memories. We hope you’ll brave the predicted cold and pack the gym! Anyone and everyone is welcome, whatever your role with wrestling was/is, including former wrestlers, coaches, fans, parents, administrators and custodians, teachers, supporters/boosters, cheerleaders, table workers, referees, etc.
During the duals, memorabilia will be on display and current apparel and t-shirts will be available for sale while you visit.
The first dual will be between St. Charles and La Crescent at 5:00 p.m. Junior Varsity matches will be wrestled continuously on a second mat.
Goodhue will wrestle La Crescent around 6:00 p.m.
After this dual, former wrestle Mike Kurtii will MC a presentation of the program’s 50 seasons at approximately 6:30.
The dual with St. Charles will start after the presentation around 7:00 p.m.
After the dual, there will be food and beverages and cake provided in the wrestling room gym (cafeteria) for more socializing. Afterward many will be going downtown to continue socializing.
Please make every effort to attend a special night of wrestling and celebrating the many accomplishments of Goodhue Wrestling!
This is a reminder to place your order for the annual fundraiser t-shirt. This year we’re celebrating 50 years of Goodhue Wrestling!

So we are looking at rescheduling the banquet to the following week. I’ll post again when we have a confirmed date to replace the evening of Tuesday, March 26.
