Dave Droegemueller Named to Wrestling Hall of Fame
Former Osseo High School wrestling star Dave Droegemueller is part of the class of 2020 for the Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Association Bartelma Hall of Fame.
Droegemueller was scheduled to be inducted into the hall of fame at a ceremony in early May, but the COVID-19 pandemic changed that.
The event has been rescheduled for early October in Benson, Minnesota.
Droegemueller has been a coach for nearly 30 years, most of that time at Wayzata High School.
He’s an assistant for the Trojans and was their head coach for a time also.
It’s his career on the mat that earned Dave this honor.
He placed in the top five at state for five consecutive seasons, capping his career with back-to-back state titles for Osseo in 1985 and 1986.
Droegemueller finished his high school career with 159 wins, at the time the most in Osseo history.
He had a strong career at the University of Nebraska, although injuries took their toll.
Dave joins his late father Ken, the longtime coach at Osseo, in the hall of fame.
