14 of the school’s varsity wrestling team are competing in the 5A-Region II wrestling tournament Friday and Saturday at Wakeland High School with the chance to make the state meet Feb. 24-25 on the line.

“It is an honor to have kids that are good enough wrestlers to be at a regional meet because we have one of the toughest districts in the state, it’s quite a compliment to be at regionals,” head coach Cody Bridwell said. “The regional meet, in some ways, is tougher than state.”

Four wrestlers from each weight division will advance to the state meet and for the boys and girls competing, the regional tournament is a make it or break it meet.

“It feels pretty good knowing this meet can punch your ticket to state,” senior Tyler Hogg said. “It’s exciting knowing that this meet can also determine your seed and how you will do at the tournament.”

For a few wrestlers, the regional tournament is a chance at redemption.

“It feels really good, last year my season got cut short from an injury,” sophomore Chrystal Raine said. “I’m just really proud of myself for making it this far. It feels good, it feels like you are preparing yourself for state by wrestling other schools you don’t see during the normal season.”

“I did not go to state last year, I made it to regionals and then I ended up tearing the ligament in my left shoulder,” Hogg said. “I am really glad to be back this year because I have something to prove this year, that I could’ve done it last year.”
