The brothers made an appearance at the state tournament again this season, with Brendon Coyer taking fifth place at 120 pounds and Trenton Coyer finishing sixth at 113 pounds.

The two finished with more than 30 wins each in 2013-2014. Brendon Coyer finished with a 39-6 record while Trenton Coyer was 34-4 after missing some time due to an injury.

Brendon Coyer also picked three other awards for the most team points (270), wins (39) and pins (20). This was the second season where he led the Silverstreaks in all three categories.

Trenton Coyer picked up the Phil Benedict Takedown Award, which is given to the wrestler with the most takedowns in a season (60).

There was a tie for most escapes on the team as Colton Waldvogel and Nils Hagen both finished with 40. Ryan Engfer also had the most reversals this season with 24.

Junior Nils Hagen was named Most Improved after finishing with a 26-13 record in 2013-2014. The Silverstreaks are excited to have him back for one more season.

The Silverstreak award was handed to senior Peter Hagen. Andreasen said the senior who had 24 wins this season will be remembered for his dedication to the program.

The team also recapped its season at the banquet. The Silverstreaks started the season slowly with a 4-10 record and battled through some injuries. But the team rebounded to finish the season 14-12 overall.
