As one of only 30 wrestlers to win a State Championship 4 times in their careers, Green River's Kale Knezovich will go down as one the finest prep grapplers in the history of the state. He'll stay right in the neighborhood to wrestle at the next level, commuting to Rock Springs to compete for Western Wyoming College.

This past season. Knezovich injured his shoulder early in the season but managed to get healthy and qualify for the State Tournament in Casper. He didn't wrestle very much last season but was back to his old self in Casper with a 6-0 win over Sam Gregory of Lyman to win the 3A 157-pound championship.

In his junior year, Knezovich went 34-10 to win the 3A 138-pound crown over Hunter Velarde of Lander 8-5. Back in 2022, he won the 3A 120-pound title with a 12-3 win over Peyton Andrews of Star Valley to finish the year 31-8

His winning ways in high school wrestling started in his freshman year as he won 31 of 32 matches and the 3A 106 State Championship with a 6-4 win over Kazen Siler of Lyman. Knezovich was part of two 3A State Championship teams for the Wolves in 2024 and 2023.

Western Wyoming has been a powerhouse in junior college wrestling as they have won the National Championship for the last 2 years running.
