Mullennex notches Career Win #100

by tobin on January 15th, 2015

Seven years ago, there was a 4th Grader signed up to play basketball at the Community Center.  One small problem – only two kids signed up.  At the same time, the Faribault Wrestling Club was starting up a new Elementary In-House program.  He made the switch to wrestling In-House, and as the saying goes – the rest is history.

The kid was junior Ryan Mullennex, newest member of Faribault’s 100-win Club.

“We signed him up for basketball at the community center and they called us a week later and gave our money back. There were only 2 kids signed up in his grade because all the other kids were wrestling – funny how things work out,” said Steve Mullennex, Ryan’s father and Wrestling Club Treasurer.

Mullennex reached the milestone last week during two wins in the triangular against Eastview and Chaska-Chanhassen.  Since last week, he has continued his climb up the rankings with two more wins and now sits at 102 wins as of January 15.

“This accomplishment means a lot to me.  It makes all the work I had to go through, worth it.  Definitely a goal for this season, but I see it as a step on the way of getting 150,” said Ryan Mullennex.

“Ryan Mullennex has a strong desire to improve as a wrestler each day.  He spends countless hours in the both the wrestling room and weight room.   He works hard and with great determination on perfecting his technique,” said head coach Jesse Armbruster.  “Ryan is a great person of value and a strong leader for a very young team.  Not the most vocal in the room, but if you want to know how to become a winning wrestler, and more importantly, a winning person in life, just take a look at what Ryan is doing.  He carries himself like a champion!”

Mullennex and the Falcons will travel Friday to the Henry Sibley Quad for three duals against Blaine, Richfield, and Henry Sibley.  The following day on Saturday, they will be at the Eastview Invite.
