Two wrestlers move on to regionals

The wrestling team competed in districts for their 2A-8 division on Saturday Feb. 17, beginning at 10 a.m.

While several students competed in different weight classes, the overall team score was low.

There were two students who competed, and are moving on past districts, senior Jaekwon Bryant and junior Daniel Malats.

During one of Bryant’s matches, he and his competitor bumped heads, which resulted in both of them having to get checked for concussions, with the results being negative.

“We just bumped heads the first match, but other than that my takedowns were pretty clean” said Bryant when asked about his performance.

Other teammates who competed knew they still needed to work harder in the future.

Due to the team being relatively young , with only two, four year wrestlers, they have work to do.

“I think they are doing good” said coach Michael Patrick, “were young so I didn’t expect a lot of wins, I am just looking for improvement”.
