Add more one plaudit to the outstanding prep wrestling career of Perry senior Kaleb Olejniczak — he was recently named Academic All-State by thepredicament.com.
It is the third such honor for Olejniczak, a four-time state tournament qualifier and three-time place-winner.
Olejniczak, who will wrestle for the University of Northern Iowa, was 47-2 this season while finishing third in Class 2A at 138 pounds. He was the 3A state runner-up at 126 as a junior and was fourth at 113 pounds in 2A as a sophomore after reaching the tourney, but not the podium, as a freshman.
He leaves as Perry’s all-time victory leader, finishing with a career mark of 180-21 (.896).
