Athlete, Wrestling, 1989-1990
Transferring from another community college to Waubonsee for his sophomore year, wrestler Stanley Gress made an immediate impact. He won the St. Louis Open; was Skyway Conference Champion, the Skyway Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player and Region IV Champion; and placed third in the nation at the NJCAA Wrestling Championships. Gress finished the season 48-9, which still stands as a Waubonsee record for most wins in a single season. Subsequently, Gress was named Waubonsee’s Male Athlete of the Year for 1989-1990. After graduating with an associate degree, he moved on to Eastern Illinois University on a wrestling scholarship.
