Making The Jump – Sartell-St. Stephen Wrestling

When Sartell-St. Stephen head wrestling coach Cody Olson took over the job before the 2009-10 season, the program was struggling.

“The program was down,” Olson recalled. “They were talking about a possible co-op. The numbers were down – I think they had about 20 guys – 7th to 12th grade – in the room. They were having trouble filling the lineup.”

Four years later, Sartell made a big jump. Not only did they have a full line up, but they were also pushing the best teams in the area.

“My third year we sent three kids to State,” Olson said. “We were close to .500 that year and were in a lot of close duals. The fourth-year we won the conference – which was the first time since the 1970s.”
