A Great Place To Be – Adrian Wrestling

The Adrian wrestling program has a history most teams would be envious of. They were led for years by one of the icons of Minnesota high school wrestling. They have had success at the Class AA and Class A levels. The Dragons have had extended stretches of state tournament appearances and section finals appearances. Adrian wrestling was a good place to be. In the last few years, the program has fallen considerably short of its storied history.

Now, the program is starting to work its way back. Just a few years ago, they could not fill a varsity lineup. But in the last two seasons, the numbers have improved and so have the results. Head coach Gregg Nelson knows it is going to take a lot of hard work by a lot of people to get back to where the Dragons’ were ten years ago. However, they are moving in the right direction, and Adrian wrestling is again a great place to be.

Nelson’s wrestling career started in one of the best programs in the state.

“I grew up on a dairy farm near Owatonna, and I am the youngest. All my older brothers wrestled,” Nelson said. “It was just kind of expected. I did a little bit of youth wrestling – nothing like they do nowadays. I got into the (wrestling) program more in junior high.”
