Wayne State College wrestling is bringing up a new crop of wrestlers.

Led by a few experienced wrestlers WSC is mainly young guys. These young guys stepped up to help lead the Wildcats to a second place finish at the Colorado State University Invite. The Cats scored 91 points losing to BYU’s club team, who scored 107.5 points.

“It was a great meet for us. It is a lot of the same competition we will see at nationals, so it is a good way to see how we stack up,” Coach Aaron Shutte said.

Jacob Vogel helped the team getting first in the 141 lb. division. Devin Rupp came in second in his division.

“The team came in second which is what matters. I am happy with the way I wrestled, and the way the team wrestled,” Rupp said. “We have a lot of young guys that will only get better.

WSC has some important events coming up. On Dec. 12 the Cats will travel to the University of Nebraska at Kearney followed by the NCWA National Collegiate Duals in January.

“A lot of the same teams we saw in Colorado will be at nationals in January, and I feel like if we wrestled better in the first round we would have won this dual,” Shutte said.

The club will be fundraising to help pay their way to nationals. Find a WSC wrestler for details.
