At this Thursday’s (Jan. 9) home wrestling meet against Saydel and Colfax-Mingo, the Roland-Story wrestling team will continue their trading cards promotion featuring Norsemen wrestling stars from years past. Prior to the start of the meet, which gets under way at 6 p.m., a short presentation will be held honoring Chad Markwardt and Dylan Rusher. In conjunction with this special event, their trading cards will then be released.
Markwardt was a two-time conference champion and a sixth place medalist at the state wrestling tournament. Rusher is the only four-time state qualifier in R-S history, placing eighth and sixth in two of those trips. He was also a three-time conference champion. Dylan set new school records for season wins, career wins, career pins and fastest fall.
The trading cards are free to any student or child wearing Roland-Story attire. They are available to anyone else for just $1.00 each. At the Norsemen’s first home meet held on Dec. 19, Jon Wing and Scott Dunn were featured.
