Krouse has been on the state postseason stage numerous times… and he’s just a junior…
It’s hard to miss Kaden Krouse. The mustached junior is Chewelah’s two-time state champion and tends to turn heads when its his turn to wrestle.
Krouse has captured state wrestling titles as a freshman and sophomore and is currently ranked No. 1 at 182 pounds for the B classification. This after coming off a football season where the Cougars reached the State 2B quarterfinals for the second straight time and Krouse was a big part of that as a linebacker and feature running back. He was also named to the All-State team on defense.
“I didn’t get a break at all between wrestling and football it just started right after football ended,” Krouse said. “I found out I was All-state when my coach Mr. Gump told me during one of my weights classes.” More
