Nehring takes sixth in State

Grant Nehring of Kimball took sixth place in the 2010 state wrestling tournament in his weight class, 125 pounds. Grant is a ninth-grader at St. Cloud Christian School which coops some of their sports with Apollo High School in St. Cloud. Nehring and Clark Athman (140#) attend St. Cloud Christian School and wrestle for the Apollo Eagles.

Nehring represented the Eagles in the individual tournament, taking sixth place. The Eagles placed fifth in the state as a team.

Nehring came into the state tournament with a 25-15 record. He is the son of Brent and Chris Nehring who are very proud of his accomplishments. In fact, Brent made a deal with Grant before the section finals: if Grant made it to state competition, Brent would give up cigarettes. Not only did Grant make it to the big show that is the state tournament, but he took sixth.

Next time you see them, be sure to congratulate both Grant and Brent. Talk about a win-win-win situation.
