Girls’ wrestling competed in the Texas Women’s Classic, with the boys taking on the Varsity War Games. Neither team placed, but learned a lot along the way.

The Redhawks wrestling team had a busy weekend, with the girls’ team competing in the Texas Women’s Classic in Lewisville Saturday, as the boys’ team wrestled in the Varsity War Games at  Memorial

Although neither team placed, head coach Justin Koons believes that the weekend’s results give them a clear indication of where they stand this season.

“Our girls had some really tough competition at TWC, but they did some really good things,” Koons said. “We know what we need to work on in order to get better. Varsity War Games was a good tournament for the boys and we got to see a lot of district opponents. Just like the girls, we had an opportunity to look at where we’re at and the kind of things we need to work on. Overall, I feel like we battled really well.”

For junior Carlisia Collette, competing against 5A and 6A schools and over 600 other wrestlers at TWC highlighted areas where the team has room for improvement.

“It was a challenging experience,” Collette said. “We need to work on thinking and strategizing more.”
