Norm Gallant will be leading his young Wadena-Deer Creek wrestling team onto the mats this season with an eye on improvement. "It will be a year of growing and getting better," Gallant said.

Barthel, who will wrestle at 138 or 145, won 17 of his 27 matches last year and placed third in the section meet for the second straight year.
