    Ord Wrestling to Hold Red/White Dual

    Reserved State Ticket Orders Due

        The Ord wrestling team will have an inner-squad dual on Tuesday, Nov. 21st.  The Chant wrestlers will be paired up by weight and will wrestle in front of the home crowd.  Some of the matches will be the first round wrestle offs for the varsity weight classes.  The Chant Jr. High wrestlers will have a dual vs. Burwell prior beginning at 6:30 P.M.  The Red/White dual will begin at 7:30 P.M. in the new gym after the dual against Burwell. 

         During the dual, Theresa Petska will be collecting Reserved State Ticket order forms to be sent to the NSAA.  In order for the Ord fans to be able to sit as one group, the order forms must be sent in together.  If you cannot make it to the dual you may bring the order forms to the school to give to Coach Swedburg or contact Theresa Petska prior to the Red/White dual.  State ticket order forms are on the NSAA Wrestling website.  We hope to have a large contingency of rowdy Ord Wrestling fans in Omaha for the state tournament February 15-17th to help push our guys through tough matches.

    Two Chants Bring Home Medals from State Cross Country Meet

    The Chanticleer state cross country qualifiers had a great day this past Friday at the State Cross Country meet.  Despite very windy conditions the qualifiers were able to record some of their best times of the year and bring home some hardware from the meet.  “I could not be more pleased with the way our kids competed”, Coach Derry Trampe commented.  “I cannot believe how hard we ran and how well we competed throughout the entire race.  Every one of our kids improved their position in the race from the first mile through the finish line.  As a coach that is all you can ask of your kids.”   


    The Chants were able to bring home a state medal from both the girls and boys races.  Kloe Severance continued her outstanding season by bringing home a 13th place medal to give her a medal in every meet she ran this season.  Severance covered the 5,000-meter course in a season best time of 21:04.9.  “Kloe had a great season as a freshman this year”, Trampe said.  “She has been a consistent performer all year and it really showed in this race.  She is a strong runner and I think that really helped her out in the windy conditions.”  Colton Rowse also completed his season by bringing home a medal from every meet he competed in by finishing 11th in a time of 17:42.3.  This time was also his best performance of the season.  “Like Kloe, Colton is a very strong runner and he was able to cut through the wind and power up the hills on this course and beat a lot of runners that had beaten him earlier in the season”, Trampe commented.  “He is one of the toughest runners I have ever had the privilege to coach.  He just wills himself past people and really finished strong.  The fact that he passed 17 people in the last mile of the race to move from 26th all the way to 11th is really impressive.”


    Also competing in the state meet for the Chants were Tim White and Morgan Ritz.  Both runners ran times that were very consistent with their average race times for the season.  “I thought both Morgan and Tim ran really good races at this meet”, Trampe noted.  “Sometimes the state meet can be overwhelming because of the number of competitors in the meet and the quality of the field.  However, both of them handled the pressure well and continually moved up as the race progressed.  I was really proud of the way both of them competed even though they were well out of the chase for medals.”  Ritz finished in 92nd place in a time of 23:55.9 in the field of 150 runners.  She improved from 106th at the one-mile mark to show how competitive she is regardless of where she is at in the race.  White finished 107th in a time of 19:56.5 out of a field of 150 runners.  Like Ritz, he improved 13 places from where he was at one mile into the race.  “Tim and Morgan are very competitive runners and I am pleased that they worked hard all the way through the race”, Coach Trampe said.  “It was unfortunate for Morgan that she spent most of the year battling injuries but I am very proud of the way all of our kids competed all season.  We had a lot of outstanding performance despite the injuries that a lot of our kids worked through all season.  These young people are a good example of the kind of rewards you can receive from working hard and that is the type of kids that I am used to coaching here in Ord.  It is truly a privilege to work with the kids that we have here.  I also enjoyed having Coach Lansman working with the kids this year as well.  He has been a great addition to our program.”
