Redhawks wrestling had their senior night Wednesday against Benbrook. The girls ended up losing, but the boys came out on top against the Bobcats.

After not placing at its most recent tournament, the Redhawks wrestling team found an opportunity to get back on track as they hosted a dual against Benbrook Wednesday. The girls’ team lost 42-30 but won five out of their eight matches, and the boys won all but two of their matches to beat the Bobcats 51-27.

“The dual went really, really well,” head wrestling coach Justin Koons said. “We wanted to make it about the seniors and make them feel special. We scheduled FW Denbrook because they are a regional opponent with a full girls team and a full boys team and we wanted to see how competitive we could be, and we were very competitive. Five out of the seven seniors won their matches, which is a huge positive.”

Sophomore Dani Banks is eager to get back out on the mat and apply what she’s learned from her team’s loss to help the Redhawks improve.

“I feel that we were very successful and stayed strong against a hard school even if we did lose, but we still have room for improvement,” Banks said.
