A returning state champion and key members of last season’s Four Rivers Conference championship team highlight Pacific High School’s wrestling roster.

The Indians return four state qualifiers from last season’s squad, including senior Austin Repp, the 170-pound Class 3 state champion.

“Our goal always is to win the Four Rivers Conference. We have a good core group back,” said Pacific Head Coach Rob Schimsa. “We could fill the entire lineup if we wanted, but we’re inexperienced in some places. We’re a little light on wrestlers down low and up top. We have a lot of guys between 120 and 182 pounds. Down the road, we’ll be pretty solid up to 195 pounds.”

Repp, a three-time state qualifier and a two-time state medalist who placed third as a sophomore, had a 56-2 record last season as a junior. He will continue to wrestle at 170 pounds for his senior campaign.

Repp’s career record is 145-15, and he’s 23 wins away from tying Jesse Knott’s school record for most career victories. He already holds the school record for career pins with 107.

“Austin is hoping to get to 200 career wins. He’s 55 away. He won 56 last year,” Schimsa said. “He’s looking really good. He had a good offseason. He won the Fall Brawl in Kansas City and also did well at a national tournament in North Carolina. There aren’t too many kids in the state who can beat him.”

Pacific’s other returning state qualifiers are juniors Joe Rind and Dalton Voyles and sophomore Josh Franek.

Rind (39-17 last season) will compete at 132 pounds this season after wrestling at 120 last year.

“Joe keeps getting taller. He’s a skinny 132 pounds,” Schimsa said. “The good thing is he’s long and can use his leverage to his benefit. He just has to get that confidence in his head that he can compete at a high level.”

Voyles (35-17 last season) will wrestle at 182 pounds after competing at 152 at last season’s state meet.

“Dalton will have another good year,” Schimsa said. “He’s hampered with some football injuries right now. He’s gotten bigger. His quickness will do him well at 182. He’s fast for his size. He gets to practice with Austin every day, so that helps him.”

Franek (47-7 last season as a freshman) will start the season at 120 pounds, but likely will move down to 113 after competing at 106 during last season’s state meet.

“I expect good things from Josh,” Schimsa said. “He’s gotten bigger, in a good way. He has a lot more muscle.”

Pacific’s other full-time varsity returners from last season are sophomore Zain Mathena (120/126), sophomore Matthew Schimsa (138), sophomore Lane Smith (145) and junior Jarrett Harrison (195).

Also expected to fill varsity spots during the season are freshman Jai Lewis (106), junior Rob Colson (126), junior Devin Somers (138), senior Danny Nickelson (152), junior Garrett Maurath (160), junior Jamie Myers (195/220) and sophomore Tim Toney (285).
