The Tri-Valley Mustang wrestling team returns three state qualifiers from a year ago to the 2021-2022 team. Two other wrestlers have also previously qualified for the state tournament giving the Mustangs five athletes with state experience.
Tri-Valley had six wrestlers qualify for the state tournament last year, and one of those placed eighth. The five wrestlers who have state experience are juniors Lawson Loiseau and Mason Hendrixson, sophomore Isaac Nehlich, and eighth-graders Landyn Reiser and Brody Dybvig. The Mustangs are also looking to senior Zach Powell, sophomore Everett Althoff and seventh-graders Cole Hendrixson and Treyson Richter to make an impact this season.
“With 24 wrestlers on the mat this season and a handful of good young prospects, we are looking to battle hard and qualify eight-plus wrestlers to the state tournament with a top 15 finish,” said head coach Mike Gibson.
Tri-Valley’s season will start on Saturday, December 4th at the “Top of the Rock” tournament in Dell Rapids.
