Junior Joe Bob Haas, at 215 Lbs, also placed fourth at the State tourney.

Senior 140 pounder Steven Overshiner and Junior 215 pounder Joe Bob Haas led a good group of four state wrestling qualifiers at the Omaha Quest Center at the 2008 state meet.

Overshiner placed 4th for the second year in a row, finishing with a 3-2 won-loss record at 140. He lost a tough 3-1 overtime decision in the semi-finals that cost him a chance to wrestle in the finals. Steve has been a great senior leader this season, and has spent many extra hours with underclassmen, helping them to become better wrestlers.

Haas also wrestled well, winning two matches to get to the semis, where he lost to an undefeated wrestler from Howells who went on to win the championship at 215. Joe Bob leads a talented group of wrestlers that will return next season for the Bobcats, including Freshmen Aaron Jespersen and Jose Campos, who also qualified this year for state. Though the two newcomers did not win a match in Omaha, both had solid second round matches that were closely contested.

Michael Bergfield and Adam Jensen will also return as Bobcats  with previous state experience, giving the Bobcats five wrestlers that have made it to the big meet.

The Wrestling team and coaches would like to thank parents and fans that supported the team throughout the year, and expect even better things in 2008-09!
