Westside wrestler Regan Rosseter continues to make history in girls high school wrestling in Nebraska.  Rosseter and the Warriors competed in the Norm Manstedt Wrestling Invitational hosted by Central Community College in Grand Island on Jan. 6. The Westside sophomore made history with her record-breaking 20th win of the season following a first round pin. After a 16-1 record in 2020-21 and a state championship, Rosseter’s 20 wins make her the first girl to achieve such a feat in Westside wrestling history.

Rosseter expressed that setting records isn’t just for herself. The Westside wrestler also wants to see other girls challenge themselves to break the records she has set.

​​ “I want to set records so I can see the other girls try to achieve what they want,” Rossester said. “I can’t wait to have more than three girls wrestlers next year. Coach Andrew Mantzaris (middle school wrestling coach) is telling me that he has about 10 girls at the middle school. I know middle school has to wrestle boys so next year for them it’s gonna be different just wrestling girls.” 

Rosseter would go 4-0 in the invite taking home the 126 pound title, all four of which coming by pin. As the season continues Rosseter has set goals to continue her history setting year, including a back-to-back state championship season. Rosseter also expressed her plans for the future and how she plans to keep her head in the matches. 

“I want to be the first girl to win metros, districts and state for Westside,” Rosseter said. “I know I still have two more years but I want to set history for Westside girls wrestling. I also want to keep pinning everyone.”

Westside head girls wrestling coach Bob Mulligan was impressed with Regan’s recent achievements, but not surprised. He is firm on his stance that she is unbeatable on the mat.

“This is exactly what we expected,” Mulligan said, “I’ve known all along she’s the best wrestler in the state and she’s just been proving it.”

Mulligan has high expectations for the rest of Rosseter’s season. He looks forward to watching her keep her win streak alive.

“I expect her to keep winning and shattering records and milestones,” Mulligan said, “And of course this year win her second state title.”

Rosseter will take an undefeated record of 23-0 to the Schuyler Invitational this Friday, Jan. 14 against some of the top competition in the state including the number one ranked Warriors of Schuyler Central.
