Wrestling representatives are urging the Caledonia School Board to approve solo programming.

Youth wrestling coach Joe Allen and Caledonia junior Isaac Blocker presented to the School Board on May 15, requesting Caledonia’s wrestling team eliminate its partnership with Houston High School. The request was submitted in an effort to prevent Caledonia from being moved up from Class A to Class AA by the Minnesota State High School League. Many wrestlers from Caledonia joined Allen and Blocker at the meeting, showing support for dissolving the partnership.
