Great Bend coach Nathan Broeckelman

DENVER, COLO. — Great Bend wrestling coach Nathan Broeckelman helped coach the Kansas Red wrestling team to a runner-up finish at the Rocky Mountain Nationals duals.
Kansas Blue placed first with a 4-0 record. The Kansas Blue team has captured the high school division of the Rocky Moutain Nationals the past seven years.
Kansas Blue finished second with a 4-1 record. Kansas Blue earned a walkover win over Kansas Red so the wrestlers could watch the NCAA Wrestling semifinals. Kansas Blue wrestlers finished 42-3 and Kansas Red finished with a 54-6 record.
“It was a really great time and I am very blessed to have been given this opportunity to coach a lot of high caliber Kansas wrestlers,” Broeckelman said. “We had state champions or finalists in almost every single weight on both teams which made all our weights very competitive. Dual wise, it was nice knowing that you did not have any question marks as far as whether a match may or may not get won.”
Kansas Blue defeated Montana 54-3, Takedown Elite, Texas 68-6 and Dolores Huerta, Colo. 89-0.
Kansas Red defeated Hard Knocks, Colo. 72-0, Colorado Dream Team 44-12, North Montana 73-3, Combo Team 64-9.

Seven Kansas wrestlers placed first in the bracket challenge — Jason Henschel (106), Devin Onwugbufor (138), Cade Lindsey (152), Isaiah Luellen (160), Troy Fisher (170), Wyatt Hendrickson (195) and Kyler Tannahill (285).
The two Kansas high school teams assembled by coaches Will Coakley and Eric Johnson features 15 state wrestling champions and a trio of multi-time state champions.
