Youthful wrestling team building for the future

It’ll be a fresh-faced team that hits the mat for the Glencoe-Silver Lake/Lester Prairie wrestling program this winter.
“There’s a lot of teaching going on right now,” coach Lance Wurm said. “Guys are learning and coming along well.”
Thirty-three student-athletes signed up for the squad this season, with 17 of those still in either seventh or eighth grade. There’s no doubt about it, the Panthers are going to be a very young team.
“We’ve got a lot of first-year wrestlers,” Wurm said. “A lot of inexperience, so we’re going with that right now.”
Six seniors dot the varsity roster, but only two of those – Paul Lemke and Aaron Castillo – return with much in the way of varsity experience. Lemke serves as team captain.
