Out in Barnesville, Minnesota, there’s a large group of youth wrestlers. Coach Dan Cox is looking to try to solve the problem in getting kids quality mat time, while creating an enjoyable experience to keep the wrestlers in the system and prepare them for the high school program.
On Episode 592 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Cox talks bout how he developed the Northwoods Wrestling League and how it solves an issue with children who want to compete with their friends to get them on the mat and keep them on the mat. Rules involve modified dual meet scoring, allowed moves and disallowed moves that encourage learning.
Competing for quality mat time is the key, as this is geared for the recreational wrestler, not the family who wants to jump right in and chase Tulsa titles.
The snow couldn’t prevent Augsburg from winning the first women’s dual in school history on Sunday, January 19 at Si Melby Hall.

Part 2 in a series about the discontinuation of St. Olaf wrestling.
The fitting representation of the Axe of St. Olaf
What’s the most notable sports story that’s involved St. Olaf in the past 18 months outside of its announcement to drop wrestling?
The answer, known to the entire sporting world, is the school’s place in the fight to kick out Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference juggernaut St. Thomas out of the conference.
The story wasn’t just prominent in the Star Tribune here in Minnesota, but it made the AP and even ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt noted the boot. If you scratch the surface of the St. Thomas story, you find St. Olaf. So when wrestling gets cut, what are the optics?
This is part one of a series on the news surrounding the drop of St. Olaf wrestling.
What level of a responsibility should a college have to take care of its students? That’s the question Florida’s Melissa McGlynn has for the entire St. Olaf College administration.
By now, the Minnesota wrestling community knows that St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota announced it would discontinue wrestling at the end of the 2019-20 season. This announcement was released after business hours on Friday, October 18.
