Every spring at tournament time coaches from each high school section vote for their respective Section Head and Assistant Coach of the Year. Head coach selections are then put on a ballot to be voted on by all coaches at the State Tournament for Class AAA, AA, and A Coach of the Year.
Former and future wrestlers, managers, trainers, coaches, cheerleaders, mat maids, parents, and community supporters are all invited to gather for an evening of celebration and recognition of 75 years of Anoka Tornadoes wrestling on Friday, January 31 at the high school.
Former Anoka wrestler Tyler Eischens went 1-1 at the UWW Junior World Championships on August 17th in Tallinn, Estonia.
Eischens, who wrestled Greco-Roman at 72 kg (158 lbs.), defeated Deividas Subotkevic of Lithuania 9-0 in his first match. He then lost to Ihor Bychkov of Ukraine 5-2 in the next round. Eischens was eliminated from competition when Bychkov lost in the semifinals.

The three-time state finalist and defending state champion at 138 pounds is headed to Stanford next year — not just to wrestle, but to major in chemistry.

And after two packed days of action in Rochester, in the next-to-last match of the tournament, Anoka’s fate rested in the hands of Tyler Eischens. Continue reading at www.hometownsource.com
