Noble – a three-time state placewinner – has compiled a
135-6 record for the Wildcats, including a Class 2A championship at 135 pounds his sophomore year.
Last season, Noble compiled a 42-0 mark and owned an 89-match winning streak before losing a heart-breaker in the 140-pound state title bout to Ballard’s Tanner Hiatt, 5-4.
“It’s really important that I come out on top this year,” Noble said. “I tasted what it was like my sophomore year, and it was the best feeling.
“After what happened last year, it makes me want to work harder and make sure it doesn’t happen again next year.”
Noble has put in the time this summer, competing at the Northern Plains Regional in Waterloo, Iowa, and the Junior National Freestyle Championships in Fargo, N.D. He finished fourth at the Northern Plains and reached the final 18 at Fargo in a weight class that featured 99 wrestlers.
And Levi Wolfensperger
Wolfensperger is the 27th-best 2010 recruit in the nation, according to Intermat wrestling and was ranked 15th in the nation at 119 by WIN magazine at the conclusion of the 2009 season.
Wolfensperger made headlines in Virginia Beach, Va., in April at the 2009 National High School Coaching Association Nationals where he captured outstanding wrestler honors by winning the 125-pound crown with a 14-5 decision over Zach Zehner of Wisconsin.
