NOTE: This is a first in a series of podcast+ from the April 9th All-Star Wrestling Dual @ Huntley HS.
Huntley, IL- Great wrestling and camaraderie were on display last night at Huntley HS for the 1st Annual East v West All-Star Wrestling Dual Meet. This was the brainchild of Crystal Lake Central HS wrestling head coach Justen Lehr and brought to life with the help of fellow organizers, BJ Bertelsman and Lenny Grodoski. Bertelsman is head wrestling coach and host from Huntley HS and Grodoski runs the Grant HS wrestling program.
The total volume of great wrestling talent assembled gave this a real “All-Star” feel. It was also quite apparent that the kids were having a blast. IHSA State Champions Travis Piotrowski from Praire Ridge HS and Christian Brunner from Dundee-Crown HS were on hand to add real star power to the inaugural wrestling celebration. Piotrowski, 40-0 w/ 27 pins, finished first at Champaign @ 126 in 2A, Brunner won his 3A title @ 195, going a incredible 48-0 w/ 35 pins.
Listen to two great young men tell us about their senior years, wrestling and what the future may bring. Kick it back and enjoy….
