The referee stops the match for a potentially dangerous situation. – Photo by Mike McGill “They [Ward and Rebedew] both had very tough draws coming out of sectionals as a thirdplace qualifier. They wrestled well but couldn’t dictate the pace of the match which would have benefitted both of them,” said Resorter head coach Larry Ward.

“Trent had a great high school career – finishing with 125 career wins which is third in school history.”

Rebedew posted a 38-10 season record and Ward, who also competed at state last year, was 42-7.

“Max showed much improve- ment over last season. I know Max will be putting the time in during the off-season as he has in the past to continue to improve and get better in all three positions,” said coach Ward (Max’s father).

Falls’ other four state wrestlers also placed in the top six. They included Kaleb Ison who took sixth at 126; Josh Becker, fifth, 152; Dustin Setzer, fifth, 195; and Brady Koller who earned fourth at 220.
