They had some tough guys at a few weight classes that we just couldn’t compete with. They have had a successful year so far and it showed. It’s good for our JV guys to see that level of competition at class B. It’s a challenge for us.” -Coach Clark.

“Overall, I’m pretty happy the way we competed. We were just outmatched at a few weight classes. But that’s the thrill and excitement of duals. We competed well and did a lot of good things today. I’m proud of this group of young men. Wrestling in competitions like this is what makes our program as tough as it is.”-Coach Clark
