Reitmeier on Wagener: “We are excited to welcome Josh into the Augustana wrestling family! He has been around our program for a few years with Tyler, his brother, being a Viking, but now we can say Josh is fully invested. Josh is a hammer on top with solid attacks on his feet. Josh’s potential is through the roof, I think we are going to see the best version of Josh in college. He is going to continue to mature and grow in our program. Looking forward to seeing him in a Viking singlet.”

He was also the Section 6AAA region champion, placed fourth at the Rumble on the Red, and was named the Wildcat Wrestler of the Year. Wagener held a 128-55 career record at Waconia High School.
