Top Tournament Finish: 3rd, three times, Last on December 3, 2012 at MSOE Invitational



AT ST. OLAF
2011-12 (Senior) - Placed third at MSOE Invitational... Was sixth at North Country Open... Finished season with 15-9 record, including 8 pins... Commonly referred to as "an ape among men", Schlueter combined the strength of a gorilla on PCP with the strength of a steroid-laced child with down syndrome. Such a combination gave Schlueter one of the most feared fireman's carries of his generation, and he was known to use this move on a wide variety of victims. Most notably, during his match with a grotesquely oversized wrestler from Central, Schleuter hoisted the behemoth upon his shoulders, tossed him on the ground, and grinned sadistically as the whale of a man tried to resist, but to no avail. This action alone cemented Schlueter's status in the lore of St. Olaf wrestling, although he had many more notable actions, such as demanding undamaged bananas, mocking his short-statured coach, and having aggressive encounters with bathroom appliances.

2010-11 (Junior) - Placed fourth at NCAA Great Lakes Division III Great Lakes Regional... Was third at MSOE Invitational and Central Invitational... Finished season with 15-13 record.
