Ocon Wrestling

The high school wrestling season has officially started. The wrestling team led by Coach Steve Olson is ready for a battle as they enter their second season in the Classic 8 Conference. Last year they went 3-3 in conference dual meets with wins vs Kettle Moraine, Waukesha West,Waukesha South and losses to top teams Hartland-Arrowhead, Mukwonago, and Muskego. They had one out-of-conference dual meet and that was against Watertown in which Oconomowoc won. Oconomowoc placed 4th in the Classic 8 Conference Individual Wrestling Tournament with 3rd place finishes by Jacob Mindiola (132), Sawyer St. George (152), Evan Griswold (170), and Marco Contreras (Heavyweight). They also had a 2nd place finish by Alex Schmidt (220) and a 1st place finish by Keagan Lazar (160) who became Oconomowoc’s first ever Classic 8 Champion. Oconomowoc then placed 5th at the Division 1 Regional at Sun Prairie, Falling short of qualifying for Team Sectionals. Oconomowoc had 10 Wrestlers qualify for the Sectional Tournament in Fort Atkinson. Keagan Lazar was the only wrestler from Oconomowoc to advance to the WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament at the 152 pound weight class. At the state tournament he became one of the top 8 best Division 1 Wrestlers at that weight class.

This season Oconomowoc has many team goals that they hope to get accomplished. Stay tuned to The O Spotlight’s Website, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube for updates on the season. Also Follow @Oconwrestling on Twitter and Instagram for additional updates.
