Webster Area wrestlers struggle with numbers

In a sport of wrestling it comes down to numbers and that is one thing the Webster Area Bearcats are short of this year.

Coach Wade Rausch listed his squad with senior Matt Mork, Junior Tacey Miller, Sophomores Trace Shoemaker, Blaise McGregor and Isaac Nelson, freshman Haeden Jorgenson, eighth graders Gage Baumgarn and Tayten Kurkowski and seventh grader Gavon Larson.

The girl wrestlers will have sophomore Abbi Garrett, freshman Jocelyn Rumpca and seventh grader Brooke Grajczyk.

Rausch said in talking about who will be the toughest team in the conference, “We will struggle with everyone. Our numbers will have a lot to do with that.” He added, “The wrestlers will compete, I don’t doubt that for a minute.”

The Cats lost Cael Larson, Caleb McGregor and Annie Witt to graduation.


The Cats will open the season on Dec. 3 at the Clark Tournament, Dec. 10 at Howard Tournament, Dec. 15 NEC Tournament in Webster, Dec. 17 at Mt. Vernon-Plankinton Tournament, Dec. 22 Redfield/Groton triangular, Dec. 31 Webster Holiday Invite at the armory, Jan. 6-7 at Central Cass Tournament, Jan. 12 Groton/Redfield Tournament home, Jan. 14 Gettysburg Tournament, Jan. 21 at Little B Invite, Jan. 26 at Milbank/Sisseton/Lisbon Quad, Jan. 28 at Lee Wolf Tournament, Feb. 7 at Clark-Willow Lake Quad, Feb. 11 at Huron Tournament, Feb. 18 Region 1B and Feb. 23-25 State B.
