Wrestling: Gruchow takes part in Goodwill Duals
West Central Area’s Hunter Gruchow took part in the Minnesota/Wisconsin Goodwill Duals that were held in Forest Lake on June 2, competing against top wrestlers in the state of Wisconsin.
Gruchow was among the elite novice wrestlers in Minnesota that became eligible for a roster spot at the 24th annual event, earning the right to challenge the Wisconsin All-Star Team in a non-placing tournament meant to establish a wrestling friendship between Minnesota and Wisconsin communities.
In an effort to further build and strengthen the relationships between the neighboring states, each wrestler exchanged T-shirts from their home club with their first dual’s opponent prior to the dual.
Gruchow won three of his four matches in the tournament.
