Despite facing out of state competition, the Redhawk wrestling team finished first overall in the Heath Invitational. “We all wrestled to our best abilities and it showed,” senior Taylor Clapp said.

Heading into the Heath Invitational on the last day before Thanksgiving break, it might have appeared that the Redhawks girls’ wrestling team had their work cut out for them as they competed against other schools from Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

But the Redhawks placed best overall for the first time in more than five years and also got first place for the first time in nearly eight years. Individually, all of the girls’ team members placed within the top six spots, with six of them garnering podium finishes.

“We all wrestled to our best abilities and it showed,” senior Taylor Clapp said. “There is always more room for improvement, but overall we did extremely well this tournament. “I believe we did extremely well in hyping each other up and cheering on our team. There wasn’t a single match where one of our teammates didn’t have someone in their corner.”
