The wrestling program has a busy weekend, beginning with a dual match against McKinney Boyd Thursday.

For junior James-Ethan Harris, practice has presented a good opportunity to perfect inconsistencies, making the ultimate difference on match day.

“Since our last tournament, coach has taken a different approach to practice,” Harris said via text. “Before and after practice we drill our basic moves, so that coach Bridwell can get more coaching done during practice.” 

Head coach Cody Bridwell believes these changes can be utilized to more effectively address the team’s issues in the season so far. While improvement is exciting, Bridwell looks forward to competing with wrestling’s newly filled-out roster with football players finally able to join the team. 

This will be the first weekend with our full line-up,” Bridwell said. “I am very excited to see what our team can do with the additions of our football players that are now ready to roll on the mat.”
