Ready for Wrestling
October 1, 2018
A big event is coming to New Ulm this winter. New Ulm’s Public High School will be holding 3AA Individual Wrestling Sections for the first time. Superintendent Jeff Bertrang said, “I’m excited for the event. We want to show off our facilities and pull off a good event.” Individual wrestling sections start on a Friday night and go all day Saturday. Wrestlers must place in the top two of their weight class to make it to the state tournament at the Excel Energy Center.
The section tournament was held at Dawson-Boyd in the 2017-2018 season. Now, being held in New Ulm, it will bring in lots of competition, putting New Ulm in the eyes of people for not only wrestling, but helping the town’s economy overall. “Previously people didn’t always want to come to New Ulm, but now we have the facilities,” said AD Troy Guentzel.
