Royals find pre-season success at Luther Team Camp

The Woodbury Royals had 18 wrestlers and 2 coaches make the trek to Decorah, IA this week to compete in the Luther Team Camp.  This has been an annual summer trip to team build and get the team ready for the upcoming winter season.

Captain Austin Braun led the charge, going undefeated in the 10 dual matches as well as running the table in his individual weight class.  Both Braun and Max Fick garnered the coveted "Wrestler of the Day" titles during the camp.  In addition, Braun won his 2nd title in the "I'd rather thrown you than know you" competition.  A link to a video of the throw is listed below.  His partner, Brock Rinehart, managed to get away unscathed.

As a team, the Royals went 7-3 in dual meets against some top competition from Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota.  Overall, the Royals had 3 weight class champions in individual competition.  But the team building success cannot be measured.


8th place:  Hayden Timmerman

6th place:  Cedric Ramos, Kevin Class

5th place:  Cade Johnson, Max Fick, Alex Mancera

4th place:  Sam Ellis, Zane Shaffer

3rd place:  Brock Rinehart, Gavin Bradley, Donald Nde
