By now, most high school wrestlers have long ago hung up their singlets and shoes for the season, forgetting the long hours of sweat and blood left on mats mostly found far from the spotlight.

Wyatt Fitterer and Cordell Pederson are not like most high school wrestlers.

The NRHEG students have continued to wrestle since shortly after the high school season ended in March, qualifying in May for USA Wrestling nationals in both team and individual competition as part of the Lakeville Freestyle/Greco-Roman Wrestling Club.

Fitterer and Pederson, seniors at NRHEG High School this fall, are no strangers to big time wrestling, with four state tournament appearances and an international trip to Australia and New Zealand between them. Pederson has been to three consecutive state tournaments. Fitterer, a state qualifier as a freshmen, did not make it as a sophomore and had his junior season cut short by injury.

The New Richland Jazz American Legion baseball team snapped a four-game skid by sweeping a doubleheader at Hayfield Saturday, June 27. The locals were coming off a 10-0, five-inning shutout loss at Rochester Lourdes. The Jazz improved its record to 3-4.

The Jazz could not contain a Lourdes team that reached the state high school semifinals this spring.

John Hubly and Eli Lutgens had the lone hits for Post 75.

Dempsey Tucker started on the mound and took the loss. Lutgens and Sam Prigge pitched in relief. The Jazz had three errors.

NRHEG’s Altrichter qualifies for state tournament

The NRHEG High School clay target team finished the season by traveling to the state Class 4A tournament in Alexandria June 14.

Twenty-nine of the team’s 54 athletes made the trip to compete in Novice, Junior Varsity, and Varsity level competition. Also at stake was the opportunity to return to the MSHSL State Clay Target Tournament. Last year, NRHEG was part of the inaugural year of this event.

Almost all shooters shot near or above their season averages with some turning in personal bests, but it wasn't enough to bring the team back to Prior Lake. Of the students who participated, Tyler Raimann of NRHEG turned in the top score with a 96/100. This was good enough to place Tyler in the top 10 for the varsity shooters. Tanner Alfson (Albert Lea) was in the top 10 for JV shooters with her score of 91/100. The varsity team placed in the top 10 of Class 4A teams they needed to be in the top four to advance to the MSHSL state tournament in Prior Lake.
