Four seniors will graduate out of the Knoxville Wrestling program after this season. Joe Hollinrake, Matthew Landsperger, Cody Ray Smith, and state qualifier Chase Bellon each left their mark in their own way. Hollinrake will leave as the winningest wrestlers in program history, and Landsperger is best remembered for his run through the 2017 state meet where he placed fourth. Coach Doug Hatch tells KNIA/KRLS Sports while things did not always go as they had hoped, he says all four wrestlers were an important part of the program and very important to him as they were freshmen when he took over the program.
