In my opinion each championship should have all eyes watching like volleyball in the fall and boys and girls basketball in a few weeks. The athletes deserve it after their hard work getting to the title match.
Among the state's smallest schools the Medford Tigers have the highest ranking out of Section 2 at #7. In fact they are the only ranked team out of Section 2 in Class A. #2 Dover-Eyota, #10 Chatfield represent Section 1 among the Dirty Dozen with Caledonia/Houston, Kenyon-Wanamingo in the Lean and Mean.
This honor is long overdue in my opinion. Not only is Wayne good at working with kids on their wrestling moves but he is a great role model for youth. A dedicated family man who helps instill the value of good sportsmanship.
