This past Sunday the Rochester Community and Technical College Yellowjackets started their competition schedule hosting the Yellowjacket Open. The tournament brought in several different NCAA and NJCAA schools.
Leading the Jackets was the trio of champions: Connor Hanson (Harmony, MN) 165, Ryan Jones (St. Michael, MN) 197, and Chase Nottestad (Westby, WI) Hwt. The Yellowjackets also had several other wrestlers place in the tournament.
“The guys wrestled really well, and the level of competition at this tournament has been getting better and better. We have a great group and I look forward to working with them this year,” said wrestling coach Randy Rager.
The Yellowjackets take next week off to help with the JJ Classic, which will be hosted at the RCTC Field House. The next time they will be in wrestling action is at the Luther Open in Decorah, IA on November 14.
