JAMESTOWN — After a couple of duals and tournaments, one thing has become clear to the North Dakota prep wrestling community — Jamestown High School has one of the best wrestling teams in the state.

The second Class A Coaches Wrestling Poll was released on Dec. 14.

The Blue Jays were tagged as the No. 2 team in the state, second only to Bismarck High School. Individually, the Blue Jays had nine wrestlers ranked in the top 6.

Jackson Walters ranks No. 1 in the 182-pound weight class. Sam Schlepuetz is ranked second in the 132-pound bracket while Grady Anderson and Colton Mewes were pinned as the second-best in the 145- and 170-pound classes.

Aden Braun has not even wrestled yet this season but the senior is still ranked third in the 138-pound category. The Jays' 106-pounder, Jack Schauer and 145-pounder Pete Rasmussen came out as the No. 4 best wrestlers.


The Jays' heavyweight, Dalton Darby, ended up ranked fifth. Bo Nelson has been battling a back injury so far this season but still came out as the No. 6 wrestler at 220-pounds
