HHS returns 9, led by champion Kendal Clark

Humboldt Head Wrestling Coach Chad Beaman got excited as he talked about the upcoming girls’ wrestling season.
The Wildcats begin their second year with the program, bolstered by last year’s seventh place finish in the state tournament and the return of nine letterwinners, led by defending state champion Kendal Clark in the 170-pound class.
“The girls are really excited to get started this year and we’ve added to our numbers. They are doing a nice job in practice. They only get about an hour of practice each day but they are making good use of their time,” Beaman said.
“We already notice a difference in them. The girls who are back are much more confident in what they are doing and they show improvement each day in practice. It is exciting to see,” Beaman said.

HHS returns 16 lettermen

Humboldt wrestling coach Chad Beaman has built a consistent winner over the last decade. Based on the return of 16 lettermen, there’s no reason why the Wildcats cannot duplicate last year’s overall dual record of 20-4, including 6-1 and first in the North Central Conference.
On top of that, Humboldt also competed in the Class 2A state dual team tournament, where they placed eighth. Individual state qualifiers Jase Goodell and Colten Goodell also return.
“We wrestled a total of 24 duals last year so every letterwinner saw varsity action at some point last year. We graduated five seniors who were in our varsity lineup but we have 16 guys back with varsity experience,” Beaman said.
