After 13 matches, LHS wrestlers have finished their 2021-2022 season. Head coach Stuart Johnson took the team to an array of tournaments and duels around Idaho. Coach Stuart Johnson describes this year’s season saying, “Lot’s of ups and downs! We hit a much harder schedule than we seen for a couple of years. We seem to peak at the right time of the year. Johnson said some of the star players of this year’s team are Tristan Bremer, Hoyt Hvass, Robert Storm, Logan Meisner, and Joley Slyter. Some hopes Johnon has for next year’s season are “To get more female athletes involved in wrestling! We are always looking for more wrestlers that are dedicated to working hard. We want to build more pride in the sport. It is hard and has a long season!”.
Sophomore Cole Lockart has noticed changes this year with COVID. “We didn’t have to wear masks and got to go to more matches,” Lockart said. Some ways Lockart improved this season was through being on varsity all year and winning more matches. “One of my favorite memories was having snowball fights at the rest stops on the way home from tournaments,” Lockart said. Lockart plans on continuing to wrestle next year and has made a goal to place at the State Championship in 2023. Tristan Bremer, one of the senior wrestlers, plans on continuing wrestling in college and has a goal to win a national title. One of Tristan’s favorite memories from this year’s season was bus rides with the team. The thing that Tristan is going to miss the most about high school wrestling is the community and his friends. The team has gone to districts in Lake City and brought home 8 wins, these players then went onto state wrestling and had 4 players’ place. Tristan Bremer with 1st place , Hoyt Hvass also with 1st, Joley Slyter with 6th, Robert Storm with 3rd.
