Sparta High School senior Hayden Krein made his intentions official by signing his National Letter of Intent to wrestle for Division I Northern Illinois University on Wednesday.
Krein is a three-time member of the All-Tribune second team while being stuck behind wrestlers with a combined record of 137-1 (West Salem/Bangor's Devin Bahr twice and Westby's Ross Withington once).
Krein owns a career record of 119-14 and has placed third or better all three times he has qualified for the WIAA individual state tournament. He placed third in Division 1 last season after compiling a 36-2 record at 160 pounds.
Krein won a state championship at 152 as a sophomore and placed third at the same weight as a freshman.
