Nineteen wrestlers from the Neillsville-Greenwood-Loyal and Spencer-Columbus teams took to the WIAA Division 2 sectional meet mats in Osceola on Feb. 20 with visions of a state tournament berth on their minds. Only four of them left satisfied.
For NGL, 285-pound junior Nick Rueth won a sectional title and will make his second straight trip to Madison at the end of the week. Senior 152-pounder Derek Nielsen also qualified for a second straight Madison trip via a third-place finish at Osceola.
For Spencer-Columbus, senior Austin Post punched his first state ticket by taking second place at Osceola at 132 pounds. Sophomore Hunter Luepke took third at 182 pounds to earn a return trip to Madison.
