recent graduates. Josh Ison has taken a job in Hansen, Idaho at Hansen High
School teaching Family Consumer Science and looks to help coach wrestling this
year. Tyler Wozniak was recently hired as the Head Wrestling Coach and Social
Studies teacher for Morehead High School in Eden, NC. Jake Calhoun also moves
out of state as an Assistant Wrestling Coach for Gettysburg College in
Gettysburg, PA. And finally, Mitch Szwet has accepted the Head Wrestling job at
Kewaunee. Congratulations to those guys.
The John Roberts wrestling facility construction phase was completed this
summer. We are still accepting donations and are working toward room enhancement
phase. We anticipate getting new wall mats and a lift system for the new meet
mat sometime this year. The Pointers will have an open house in the new facility
before and after the UW-Oshkosh dual on November 30th. Mark your calendars for

Pointers were Jake Calhoun (125), Jered Kern (133), Chase DeCleene (141), Eric
