The Guillotine 2010 Academic All-State Wrestlers

(First published in the May 14, 2010 issue of The Guillotine Newsmagazine.)

Volume 39 Issue 8The 2010 edition of The Guillotine Academic All-State honorees features thirty first-team members, thirty second-team members, thirty third-team members, and twenty honorable mention wrestlers.

Wrestlers were submitted on nomination forms signed by a coach and school administrator verifying their current GPA (minimum of 3.0), number of current season varsity matches wrestled (minimum of fifteen), current season win percentage (minimum of 60%) and grade (junior or senior).

Points were tallied according to current varsity wins, current state tournament placement and cumulative high school GPA. Each of the first team wrestlers receives two certificates and a letter of recognition.

This year’s top Academic All-State wrestler spot goes to senior Andrew Youngblom of Mora. Andrew capped his high school career with the Class AA 140-pound state title, a near-perfect 42-1 record, and a 4.19 GPA.

Not far behind Youngblom is senior Marshal Ash of Milaca and junior Tyler Mergen of Monticello.

Everyone on the first team placed fifth or higher at state this year, including twelve champions and four runners-up. First team members have an average season win percentage of 93%, an average of just over forty season wins, and an average GPA of 3.84.

Fourteen nominees had a perfect 4.0 GPA (or higher): Max Anderson of Dassel-Cokato, Marshal Ash, Scott Coughlin of Trinity at River Ridge, Tristin Faust of Northfield, Garret Garness of Kasson-Mantorville, Ben Gaughan of Moorhead, Cory Hansen of Albert Lea Area, Zach Keller of Medford, Kyle LeDuc of Thief River Falls/Goodridge, Nick Rydell of Saint Peter, Ethan Skog of Meadow Creek/Spectrum, Tyler Stevens of Elk River, Tommy Teigen of Meadow Creek/Spectrum, and Andrew Youngblom.

Three nominees finished as undefeated 2010 state champions and all three made our first or second team: Travis Borchert of Browerville/Eagle Valley, Destin McCauley of Apple Valley, and Dylan Ness of Bloomington Kennedy.

Repeat Guillotine first-team members are John Gusewelle of Sauk Centre, Dalton Henderson of Owatonna, Ethan Hildebrandt of Saint James, Zach Keller of Medford, Kyle LeDuc, Tony Vaske of River Valley, and Samuel Warne of Perham.

Foley, Hastings, and Simley had the most first, second, and third-team members with four.

Three teams had three first, second, and third-team members: Centennial, Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg, and Plainview-Elgin-Millville.

Congratulations to all nominees and thanks to the coaches, administrators and parents for helping The Guillotine recognize some of Minnesota’s finest student-athletes.
