Waukon wrestling team returns 10 letterwinners for 2014-2015 campaign

The Waukon wrestling team has a rather large collection of 29 young men to choose from for its 2014-2015 season, hoping to continue to build upon the progress made under first-year head coach Matt Pladsen last season. Improving from just one dual match victory two seasons ago to five last season, the Indian matmen will look to continue that progression this season.

A total of 10 returning letterwinners will be looked to for doing their part in that continued progression. Those 10 returning veterans will fill in a great deal of this season’s varsity line-up and include seniors Adam Benzing, Gunnar Grangaard, Marshall Lyons and David Miller, along with juniors Collin Cota, Joe Frieden, Carter Fuhrman, Miles Ramsey and Dawston Regan and sophomore Nathan Benzing.

“These guys are my leaders, not only on the mat but off,” Coach Pladsen said. “They’re just all-around good leaders and individuals.”
