The Broken Bow wrestlers are ready and excited for the upcoming season. There will be approximately 25 wrestlers this year. The wrestlers have prepared in the off season with by attending several camps. The wrestlers went to the UNK camp, a UNL camp held in Dunning and a camp in Bow led by the Taubenheim Brothers. Head coach, Mr. Ed Schaaf, said this was a great experience because the Taubenheim Brothers have seven state medals and four state championships. Aside from camps, Coach Schaaf has held open mat wrestling for kids to come to. Coach Schaaf has also started conditioning with wrestlers running, doing push-ups and more. Coach Schaaf is assisted Mr. Luke Coufal and Mr. Will Smith, plus volunteer coaches Mr. Jason Rynearson and Mr. Dan Ascherl.
Coach Schaaf said he expects to have some good wrestlers and he expects improvement out of everyone. He said he thinks a lot of wrestlers have put themselves in a position to have a great shot at going to state, and that they have a desire to win.
In speaking of the season, Coach Schaaf said he enjoys duals better than tournaments. Coach Schaaf explained that you get more of a “team feel.” Coach Schaaf said one match can make a difference; the best wrestler’s match is just as important as someone’s who is not the best.
Coach Schaaf said this year they are working on something called self-affirmation, believing in themselves, along with working on developing leaders, and personal accountability to have ownership.
Coach Schaaf said the part he likes most about wrestling is the relationships you develop. Coach Schaaf said wrestling is a struggle; it teaches kids to fight and set goals to work for what they want. Coach Schaaf said he likes the physicality, the one-on-one. It’s basically “me versus you,” he said.
It’s that time of year again! No, I’m not talking about Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even deer season, I’m talking about basketball season! The boys’ basketball team will be at it again under the guidance of Ryan Wetovick, head coach.
When asked what some of his goals for the season are, he said, “To be competitive in every game and to get better every day.” Coach Wetovick said they are going to try to push the ball up the floor more and run on teams to improve. He said he wants the team to be more aggressive on both sides of the ball. He added that they will need to work hard on defense, not getting out rebounded, and not letting their opponents score to make up for a lack of height on the team.
To prepare for the season, the team went to summer camps, played in a summer league in addition to lifting weights and speed and conditioning drills.
Coach Wetovick lists Cozad, Gothenburg, and Ord as the team’s biggest rivals. So let’s all wish the Indians good luck as they head into yet another season and try to improve on last year’s record of 6-17!
