Tom and Nylla Hanson.  Their oldest daughter, Tiffany, graduated from B-W in '91.  They moved to Brillion and Joel graduated in '95 and Krista graduated in '98.  Tom and Nylla are in Madison and all three kids moved back to NW Wisconsin.



Thanks for the jog of the memory. I was thinking that Tiffany was a tad older. I remember her in High School at the same time as me. I believe Tom worked in River Falls, needed to catch a ride from him back in the day, car broke down on the way to my work Wink

Graduated with me Littleguy. And my wife. Grin  Of course I was never in High School with you so it could get confusing.  Never new Tom was that involved in wrestling.  Nice to hear.

People like Dave & Mary can never be thanked enough or given the credit they deserve.  People like this deserve to be in the national hall of fame.  I wish I could say that I have done a small fraction of what they did and are doing for wrestling.

Agreed.  Amazing what Dave(with the help of others) has done.

I think we are very lucky to have the entire Black family here in Wisconsin.  The commitment is amazing.  I know we appreciated both F & G tournaments, but when Dave brought in the Folkstyle is when WI began getting on the mat and map.  My youngest happened to be one of the champions that first year at River Falls.  It was so great coming to a state tournament looking at a 16 man bracket vs the 3 or 4 that we were facing with freestyle or greco-roman.  My thanks to the entire family, but especially Mr. & Mrs. Black for their commitment to WI Wrestling.  A special thank you to the keeper of the records, what a great post.

I really appreciate having all three styles for state tournaments now. Each style enhances your performance in the other. Look at the great dual teams we've had as a result in recent years. National Dual Greco champions! Look at what those kids are doing now at the college and Olympic levels.
