CMC All-Conference wrestlers announced

EV-W shows well 

The 2012-2013 Central Minnesota Conference recently released the high school All-Conference wrestlers, and the EV-W Eagles landed two in the all-conference status, while four earned honorable mention. The Eagles’ all-conference wrestlers are seniors Zach Blonigen and Austin Peterson. Zach’s conference record is 5-1 and Austin posted a perfect 4-0 mark. Honorable mention recipients, each with 4-2 final conference records, include juniors Luke Kuechle, Hunter Mathies, Cain Renner, and seventh-grader Matt Schindler. Eagles Coach Dan Berg was pleased with the successful season. “Well, it was a year with a lot of ‘shoulda,’ ‘woulda,’ ‘couldas,’ but when you can’t get a full line-up in there every meet, it’s going to be tough. It was a good season overall, with 2 all-conference and 4 honorable mention wrestlers making the cut. We had two last year, so getting 6 in there this year was good. Three of those kids, Luke Kuechle, Hunter Mathies, and Matt Schindler, got their honorable mentions the last dual of the year, coming up with big wins over good opponents.”
