After you complete the high school wrestling registration on the MHS website, there is still one more step to stay connected. Click the link below to link (or create) your sportsengine account to Tonka wrestling for team updates, News, schedule changes, or volunteer sign-ups.
The Registration "Tonka High School Wrestling Team" is not currently available.
Minnetonka, team champions one week earlier, had only a so-so first day of the Section 6AAA Individual Tournament Feb. 24.
With five of the seven Skipper wrestlers seeded in the top two advancing to the finals, there was still some room for improvement.
The second day was about as good it gets.
Andrew and Jake at the Fargo Dome
Andrew and Jake wrestled one last time as teammates at Fargo this July in a fitting way to send off one of Minnetonka’s greatest wrestling advocates.
Jake qualified for the Greco team and went 1-2, with a win over West Virginia by fall in 1:36. Andrew qualified for both the Freestyle and Greco team going 2-2 in Greco with two pins over Texas and Oregon, and only losing to the eventual bronze medalist from Illinois 8-0. In Freestyle Andrew went 2-2 with wins over Nebraska and Florida, again losing to the bronze medalist from Illinois.
Congratulations to Jake and Andrew!

Minnetonka was represented on the MN Storm national championship cadet team by Andrew Sanders. The Storm flew out to York, Pennsylvania to compete against the elite wrestlers from all around the country and brought back gold.
Andrew scored points in every match, including a clutch win in the title match against PA when he defeated his opponent in dominating fashion 10-0.
This is the first time Minnesota has swept all age groups from Schoolboy/girl, Cadet, and Junior, winning gold in all three age divisions. The teams were honored at the MN twins game on 8/14.
