Nashua-Plainfield wrestling

Nashua-Plainfield coach Al Frost intently watches one of his wrestlers on the mat during Saturday’s home tournament.
The fact of the matter is that it didn’t look like Al Frost was going to get that milestone win last Thursday night. The Huskies had beaten Eagle Grove and West Fork earlier in the night to give the veteran coach 399 career wins, but Northwood-Kensett looked like it was going to spoil the party as...
Before the season, the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team set several goals — including having a winning dual-meet record and being more competitive in Saturday tournaments. Well, the Huskies are off to a good start on both of those challenges as they opened the season last week with a 4-2 dual...
Nashua-Plainfield sophomore Jakob Whitinger finishes off a reversal against North Linn’s Heath Moyer in a 113-pound semifinal match at the Class 1A state tournament in Des Moines.
Nashua-Plainfield’s Jakob Whitinger stood in the tunnel at Wells Fargo Arena, and even though he had just saw his season end with a loss, the smile never left his face. “I came down here to get on the stand,” the sophomore 113-pounder said Saturday afternoon, “and tonight, I get to get up on that...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Tristen Brase claimed the third indvidual conference title of his wrestling career at Saturday’s Top of Iowa meet.
When he’s old and gray, Tristen Brase will fondly remember what he accomplished in the winter of 2017-18, but for now, his focus is what lies ahead. The Nashua-Plainfield senior claimed the third individual conference championship of his career when he won the 145-pound title at last Saturday’s Top...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz looks for an opening in a recent meet against Forest City.
It isn’t that the last two months haven’t meant anything, but ask Nashua-Plainfield coach Al Frost about the Top of Iowa tournament on Saturday and the excitement rises in his voice. “The real season starts on Saturday,” he said of the 16-team meet that will be held at Forest City and be followed a...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Nathan Dettmer picks up back points on his way to a victory in a home meet against Forest City earlier this month.
It wasn’t just the way his “big guns” wrestled, it was the way kids like Shane Hillesheim, Justice Palmier and Dalton Asche fared that made Saturday a pretty satisfying day at the Hudson Invitational for Nashua-Plainfield wrestling coach Al Frost. “It wasn’t as deep as Tripoli was last week,” the...
For the first time in 15 years, Nashua-Plainfield won’t be sending a wrestler to the state tournament.  And while that fact is disappointing to veteran coach Al Frost, he won’t fault the efforts his two Class 1A district qualifiers — Brock Dietz and Jakob Whitinger — gave him on Saturday in Lake...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz  works for a pin during the third period of his 106-pound title match against North Butler’s Bryce Trees at Saturday’s Class 1A sectional tournament in Nashua.
The good news was Brock Dietz was going to qualify for the district tournament either way; the bad news is the Nashua-Plainfield junior had no idea that the third-place match had punched his ticket.  That meant, in Dietz’s mind at least, he was wrestling for his postseason life Saturday, but he was...
The top wrestler in the Top of Iowa Conference at 132, Tristen Brase won all four matches by fall Saturday.
    Coach Al Frost’s predictions came up a little short Saturday.    “I thought our kids would finish maybe 11th, 12th in the conference,” he said after the Huskies actually were ninth at the meet among the 16 teams. “We had some boys get some bonus points, those helped us move up in the ranks...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Dalton Asche and his Husky teammates head to the Top of Iowa Conference meet on Saturday.
Crunch time has arrived for the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team, but the question is this: Will good health do the same?  The Huskies battled through a tough final week of the “regular season” last week as they split a pair of duals at North Butler on Thursday and then returned to Greene on...
