“We don’t have a lot of kids out this year, but the ones we do have are hard workers,” said Head Wrestling Coach Dave Wragge as his team prepares for the 2011-12 season.
Wragge will be assisted by Dean Friedel when the wrestlers take to the mats on Thursday, Dec. 1 (today) for a dual tournament at Culbertson hosted by Wauneta-Palisade.
Leading the team are seniors Christian Miyamoto and Sean Farnsworth.
Others set to compete as Perkins County Plainsmen wrestlers are juniors Vinny Ross, Mark Hanson, Trey Johnson and Austin Thelander; and sophomores Garrett Toner and Michael Tucker.
Miyamoto, Ross, Toner and Thelander are previous state qualifiers, with Ross placing fifth at state last year.
Assisting as student managers are Jakelynn Broeder and Claire Friedel.
