Trojans wrestlers send 5 to state meet

Going into the Section 2AA wrestling meet, New Prague felt they had a realistic hope of sending five wrestlers to the state Class AA tournament. They did just that, and very nearly sent a sixth, as the Trojans had a strong showing.

New Prague had two section champions, in Justin Turek at 140 pounds and Eric Olson at 152 pounds. Also, three Trojans placed second, Mike Minette (112), Travis Rutt (119) and Jake Schoenecker (215). Schoenecker, a junior, is a first-time qualifier, while the others have all qualified before.
