ST. ANSGAR — Nick Fox was able to do something that no other Osage wrestler has ever accomplished in a long, storied history of Green Devils wrestling on Tuesday, Jan. 17.
He became the career all-time winning wrestler in school history with 180 and counting in Osage’s 39-30 Senior Night win over rival Crestwood, Cresco. It passes Brock Jennings, who finished 179-33 from 2014-17.
“Awesome for him,” coach Brent Jennings said. “He’s had an awesome career here as a Green Devil and real proud of him. He worked really hard, so it’s outstanding. Just a great kid. It couldn’t have happened to a better guy.”
It was essentially what Fox has been working for since he walked into the Osage wrestling room as a freshman.
“I knew I wanted to break the all-time win record,” Fox said, “and obviously some other records, too, but it’s pretty cool to get that.
“It’s cool. I know it’s going to get broken again in the next year or two. I know that Tucker (Stangel) will probably break it, and Blake (Fox, his brother) will probably break that. It’s cool for now.”
