Alta Kiwanis Notes

Friday, December 14, 2018

Tuesday morning’s guest speaker was John Stange, Alta-Aurelia Wrestling Coach. John coaches Pre-K-High School. This year the program began with 20 high school students but has since fallen to 14. In addition, there are 45 little kids, 15 of which are in Junior High. Alta-Aurelia H.S. wrestlers have a 3-2 record in dual meets. They finished second at a recent meet in Sibley. This year features five home meets. The next home meet will be this Thursday night Dec. 13. They will also wrestle this weekend at a tournament in Holstein. The conference meet will be hosted by West Bend-Mallard at BV University. BVU gym floor is large enough to accommodate three mats.

This year’s high school squad consists of three seniors, Nicholas Gaes, Sam Zimmerman, and Sam Sherkenback. Gaes is currently ranked number 1 or 2 in the state. Other team members include Sophomore Alex DeRoos, Schade Larsen, Brock and Brandon Mier, Zach Erpelding and Tyler Kolpin among others.
