Redhawks wrestling is back after Thanksgiving break to compete in the Rumble at the Rock. “Aside from state, this is one of the hardest tournaments that we will go to all year,” senior Taylor Clapp said.

Few songs are as closely intertwined with sports as the British band Queen’s 1977 anthem “We Will Rock You”.

That’s exactly what Redhawks Wrestling plans to do heading into the Rumble at the Rock Friday at Rockwall High School.

“After a strong showing at Heath, I am hopeful that we can follow that up with another placement finish,” head coach Justin Koons said. “I suspect that it will be a little bit of a tougher tournament with new competition so we shall see. As far as the boys are concerned I will be excited to see how we will do with having everyone back in the lineup after only taking 5 to Heath, but I’m not worried about wins and losses as much as quality battles.”

However, senior Taylor Clapp believes the Redhawks have work to do in order for those quality battles to happen.

“Aside from state, this is one of the hardest tournaments that we will go to all year,” Clapp said. “There will be six of the top teams in the state at this tournament. It is going to be a large competition with a lot of good teams, so I definitely need to improve my conditioning.”
