Redhawks wrestling hopes to improve after a loss Wednesday in a Tri-meet in the Rockwall Heath Invitational. “I think our team is gonna be a road blocker for some opponents [if we] clean up silly mistakes,” junior Juan Mendoza said.

Following losses to Northwest and Princeton on Wednesday, Redhawks wrestling will compete in the Rockwall Heath Invitational Friday, hoping to come out with more wins.

“We are young but hungry to compete,” head coach Justin Koons said. “Our strength is that we have a lot of leadership on the team, guys and girls that can coach and guide the team in the direction we are heading. I think it will come down to forfeits. We don’t have a full lineup just due to the simple fact we don’t have anyone for certain weight classes and there’s a potential to give away some free points.”

Coming off the Redhawks’ performance in the tri meet on Wednesday, junior Juan Mendoza thinks focusing on the small things can help the team improve their results.

“I’m feeling very excited to see where the team’s potential is gonna get us this year,” Mendoza said. “This tournament is tougher, [but] I think our team is gonna be a road blocker for some opponents [if we] clean up silly mistakes and  do a better job at doing what our coaches teach us and tell us.”
