Wrestlers look to future meets for success

Last Wednesday, the wrestling team officially started its season with a home meet against Seckman High school.

“We lost the meet 52-32; it was disappointing, but we knew that Seckman was going to be one of our toughest opponents of the season,” Coach Steve Cross said. “It would have been great to win, but there is plenty of future meets to continue to evaluate and place the wrestlers where we know that they’re going to succeed.”

Though the team started the season with a loss, according to junior Brenden Howe, the team refuses to let themselves be discouraged and remain optimistic about the rest of the season.

“We knew it was going to be a tough meet, but every time you loose you just have to keep your head up,” Howe said. “We’re training our hardest and trying to keep the main goal in mind; we just want to place at districts and state.”

This Tuesday, the wrestlers will attempt to overcome their most rivaled opponent: Francis Howell. With the Seckman loss behind them, they are eager to celebrate the first win of the season.
