Sherkenbach gains century mark

Alta-Aurelia wrestler Sam Sherkenbach was honored for reaching 105 career wins with a victory at 113 pounds against Graettinger/Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire (GTRA) Dec. 13.

Sherkenbach beat Sioux Central’s (SC) Cade Stearns in a 4-3 decision holding on to two and one-point leads within the final 30 seconds.

Sherkenbach is one of the seniors on the Warriors’ squad but that does not mean he has had a lot of mat experience.

“He started wrestling when he was a freshman and has learned a lot,” said coach Mike Fry.
