Nick Jouret, senior, recently broke the all time win record for the wrestling team with 146 wins, at the meet against Bonner Springs on Jan. 6.

The record he broke is a culmination of all four years wrestling at South. His record is 160 wins and 19 losses for all four years wrestling.

Jouret started wrestling when he was 5 years old and was inspired by his dad who was a wrestler in college. His older brother was also in wrestling and looks up to him.

He said, “Since they both wrestled I naturally started wrestling.”

He has been wrestling for 13 years total and wrestled all four years at South. Throughout the summer, he wrestles with the club team, Team Kansas.

According to Jouret, he started at the weight class 152 freshman year, then was 160 his sophmore year, 170 his junior year and now has since moved up to 182, his senior year.

Jouret said, “When I finished the match that I broke the all time win record I was so excited.”

He has gone to state all four years, third place freshman and sophomore year, and won the state title and an All American title last year. When he was a freshman, he was ranked sixth in state and ended up in third and fourth place at the matches at the state championship meet.

Jouret said, “Wrestling has just become a part of my life. It’s a lifestyle at this point. It’s a part of me.”

He is planning on wrestling in college, but is still unsure where he wants to go to wresle. He recently took a visit to Oklahoma State University.

When asked what tips he has for other wrestlers, he said, “Make sure you’re always having fun with it and be consistent and live the lifestyle.”
