Owatonna’s Latest Champions Added to City Sign
A pair of Owatonna High School state champs have had their names added to the city sign that greets travelers entering the city.
Peyton Robb and Brandon Moen captured state wrestling titles in March. For Robb it was his second in a row and his name is on the city sign twice to reflect that. He and Moen each return to mat for the 2016-17 season as well.
The sign also recognizes the Huskies state football title season of 2013 and the Prep Bowl runner-up finish in 2012.
Dalton Henderson's 2010 state wrestling title and Casey Dehn's 2009 dual state titles in shot put and discus round out the current version of the "Home of Champions" sign.
Recognizing all of Owatonna's state titles would take a much taller sign. OHS has won 14 state team titles. Four have come in wrestling, two each in boys basketball, baseball and boys track and once each in football, girls track, girls cross country and adapted floor hockey. Wrestling has been Owatonna's most successful individual sport, with 25 championships.
