From Tony Gentz, MSHS Wrestling Head Coach:
- “I was very pleased and encouraged with the way that we competed this evening. Today’s meet was the first competition for a decent segment of our roster and, while our inexperience showed in some ways, our potential shined through as well. I look forward to seeing the development of this group as the season progresses.”
- The wrestling team will return to action on Saturday, December 10th, when they will compete in the Westwood Super Duals. That event has a 10:00 a.m. start time.
