Havre wrestling's practice facility built by champions

Posted: Updated:

If you were to pass by the building where Havre High Wrestling practices, at first glance you wouldn't guess that this establishment is where winners are built.

All you need to do is look at the sign above the main entrance where it reads, "past, present, future champions."

It's a sign that summarizes havre wrestling down to a tee.

"We've had a really good club. We got a really good Junior High program," says Havre head coach Scott Filius.  "I think the most consistent factor for the last 19 years since I've been here is making it fun."

The Havre Blue Ponies have won 10 state wrestling titles, including 4 of the last 7. The 2013 state champions had 2 wrestlers win state titles last year and this year their lone returner, Grayson Brenna, is hungry for a repeat in the 105 lb weight class.

"All the work and stuff that you put out continues into next season," says Brenna. "You try to make youself better. From state, everybody is going to be coming after you now that you're the best. You have to work harder to get back to winning it."

The Blue Ponies also return Keegan Kenelly, who placed 2nd at 98 lbs last year. He says his experience at state is motivation to capture the state championship.

"Now that I got the experience of it i won't be as nervous and i'll know what to look for and know what to expect from it," says Kenelly.

The Blue Ponies have one more month to prepare for the state tournament in Billings….where they will look to win at least two titles in a row for the third time in school history.

It's an opportunity to add to the legacy of a house that champions have built.
