Class B Rankings #2: Grueneich To Miss Senior Season After Shoulder Surgery

cropped-ndnewbannergoldbrown.png2017 undefeated state champion Clayton Grueneich of Ellendale-Edgeley-Kulm will miss his senior wrestling season after having shoulder surgery last Friday.  The Class A football senior athlete of the year, Grueneich was one of the most dominant wrestlers on the mat last year.

Class B 106 is starting to take shape after the first weekend of tournaments.  Kindred’s Carter Schmitz is the clear-cut number one wrestler in the state, but Gunnar Mogen of Velva and Larimore’s Robert Norman showed they will be in the mix after nice performances at Velva.

*Wrestlers are ranked where they wrested at in tournament competition.  A wrestler will be moved to a lower weight class once he or she has competed in that class, and not before.   Individuals that have not wrestled in a match this season are not ranked, and will be added to the rankings once they compete.  If you have an injury to report or feel as though I am in err, email
