Kayhi wrestling kicked off on Sept. 28 with its first official practice. This year the team has 17 state qualifiers returning from last years season, only losing last year’s seniors Nate Fousel and Trevor Wutzke.
The highest returning placer last season is Brayden Linne, coming in sixth at the state tournament. State qualifier Max Collins will be a big contender for placing at state this year with a freshman year record of 32-2, and a sophomore year record of 28-12. Collins has never lost a match in Southeast in his high-school career. Payton Stewart, Justin Albecker, Kadin Hodges, Patrick Rauwolf, Vince Tenebro, Grant Collins, and Cameron Harris are all also contenders to place at state.
With all this potential, Coach Rick Collins believes, “this could be the best team in Kayhi wrestling history”.
