“It went well for most of us,” senior Garrett Reeves said. “but as a team we have a lot of weights open right now so forfeits definitely take their toll.”

Despite the dissatisfying result, the team continues to have a constructive and positive attitude towards facing challenges. Junior Mercede Alvarez found a way to win the day.

“I think what went well for me in the tournament was that I went undefeated for the day,” Alvarez said via text.

When it comes down to it, the team looks to learn from each experience, improving from setbacks as the season continues towards district.

“I think our attitude needs to be improved,” Alvarez said. “We need to be more prepared for better people and to cheer our team on.”
