Wrestling Scholarship winners


Blake Vagle, New London-Spicer

This past week I have the privilege of meeting to extraordinary young men to present the Anthony Tullis scholarship first was to Blake Vagle of New London Spicer some of the things that his coaches and teammates said about Blake Vagle. “Blake always went the extra mile and gave 100% he was a constant reliable teammate day in and day out always had a positive attitude and was always there for his teammates on and off the mat always giving words of encouragement and conducting himself in a true team player once again Blake gave the true meaning of what we look for in the recipients of The scholarship.”

Dylan Jergenson, Minnewaska area

The the second went to Dylan Jergenson of the Minnewaska area. Some words from Dylan’s coaches and teammates is that “Dylan is the type of person others want to be around whether it is in school or on the wrestling mat others are constantly looking at him to see what he’s going to do next they certainly saw how he responded to adversity after missing a sophomore season of wrestling Dylan returned to the mat and was in third at the state wrestling meet as a junior and second as a senior Dylan has always been happy to work with the younger generation of the wrestlers any chance he got in the hallways of school Dylan lights up a room with his humor and good-natured character he’s an avid outdoorsman and loves to tell stories about his recent trip hunting or fishing in the last few years Dylan has shown that he is a fierce competitor and a great teammate to others these traits will help Dylan to be successful next year at the North Dakota State College of science and electrical technology and wherever life takes him in the future. It was such a privilege to meet both these young man I know they are going to go a long way in the future.”

Austin Klaphake, Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa

So proud and privileged to present the Anthony Tullis Memorial Wrestling Scholarship to Austin Klaphake. What amazing young man true meaning of what this scholarship stands for. A few words of what some of his wrestling teammates had to say about Austin! “Austin always had such a positive attitude and was willing to help out teammates, A constant figure in the weight room and willing to try something new. Austin is just a great person to be around with his positive attitude and hard working values and never giving up. I thought it was so fitting since Anthony Tullis motto was I have your back and Austin is leaving for the National Guards and how he will be covering not just his fellow soldiers backs but our back also! Congrats Austin!!!”
