Bison Wrestlers Looking to 3-Peat at State this Weekend

Posted: Updated:
 What's it like to be a wrestler at Great Falls High in preparation for the State tournament?

"We kind of just work. Work, and we have to have fun while we are doing it," Senior Randy Keesler says.

That 'work' is paying off for the Bison. After winning back to back State championships, this years team is the favorite to win it all again.

"We know we've been ranked #1 all year and we have people asking about pressure all the time, we're trying to enjoy what we do and keep that in front of them every day and set goals and I think the kids have been handling it well," Bison head coach Steve Komac says.

in order for Komac's team to handle the competition this weekend, he says all 22 wrestlers who qualified for state will have to contribute.

"Our goal is everybody scores. The other teams that have 18, 15, 16 kids. If some of our kids don't contribute, we're even, but if every kid contributes, that's an advantage for us."

Several of his wrestlers are hoping to bring home individual state titles. Senior Randy Keesler has placed 2nd two years in a row, while Komac's son, freshman Jordan, is making his first ever trip to state.  

"A State title to me would mean more than everything in the world. Not a lot of people look at freshman thinking they're going to be State champion their freshman year at 132 pounds, But I've kind of overcome and thinking I can do this," Komac says.

Adds Keesler: "Losing it the past two years it crosses my mind, but i prepared for it this year and to win it this year would mean the world to me."

They've put in the work, now, how about that fun? You can be sure the Bison will have plenty of that if they are on top of the podium again on Saturday night.
