Kasson-Mantorville senior Bennett Berge was named Mr. Minnesota Wrestler for 2022 by the Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Association.
Berge won his fifth individual state championship at the 2022 State Meet when he won the Class 2A 195 pound title, capping a perfect 52-0 season. He became the 7th wrestler in state history to win at least five individual championships. Six wrestlers have won five; Mark Hall of Apple Valley is the only one to win six.
Previously, he won titles at 138, 160, 170 and 182 pounds and compiled a 208-13 record during that run. Berge joins older brother Brady as a winner of the award. Brady won in 2017.
Bennett will wrestle for South Dakota St. in college.
