MFL MarMac wrestlers cap off successful individual seasons at state


MFL MarMac wrestlers Karter Decker (126 pounds), Gabe McGeough (145 pounds), Jacob Trudo (heavyweight) and Zach Howe (195 pounds) capped off successful seasons at the state tournament in Des Moines Feb. 20-22.

MFL MarMac state qualifiers Karter Decker (126 pounds), Zach Howe (195 pounds), Jacob Trudo (heavyweight) and Gabe McGeough (145 pounds) are pictured with coaches Travis Johnson (left), Mike Meyer, Chet Bachman, Collin Stubbs and Tracy Decker.

126-pound Karter Decker finished his freshman year with a stellar 44-3 record.

Bulldog heavyweight Jacob Trudo, a junior, flew under the radar for much of the season, but turned up the intensity in January and February.

The tournament got off to a good start for 195-pound senior Zach Howe, who had a first-round fall over Kale Pevestorf of Coon Rapids-Bayard.

Sophomore Gabe McGeough won the fifth-place medal at 145 pounds in Class 1A. It was the best finish for an MFL MarMac underclassman in over a decade and a half.

“One thing I think I do well is rise to the occasion,” said Gabe McGeough. “I didn’t probably wrestle the best I could my first match, but as the tournament went on, I kept wrestling better and better. By the end, I was wrestling the best I had all year.”

MFL MarMac wrestlers Zach Howe, Jacob Trudo, Gabe McGeough and Karter Decker competed at the Iowa High School Athletic Association State Wrestling Tournament in Des Moines Feb. 20-22, capping off successful individual seasons. McGeough, a sophomore, won the fifth-place medal at 145 pounds in Class 1A—the best placement for a Bulldog underclassman since Kyle Pedretti a decade and a half ago.

“They’ve put in a lot of work, a lot of weekends, getting ready,” said head coach Chet Bachman. “I’m proud of these guys for making it to the state tournament. They represented us very well.”

MFL MarMac’s star running back, Kutter Anderson, has committed to play football at Morningside College, in Sioux City. The senior, surrounded by his family and teammates, signed a letter of intent last week.

Anderson became the school’s first 1,000-yard rusher this past season and earned both all-district and all-state accolades. That, paired with his leadership abilities, piqued Morningside’s interest, he said.

“They really liked my speed and my bursts and really liked my vision, being able to see cuts and make those cuts,” he commented.
