And, for Alabama fans, it is always sweet. This was supposed to be revenge in the Benz for the dawgs, but they failed to complete the mission.

in Sports by

As many fall sports come to a close, the wrestling team prepares to kickoff the winter season with passion, intent and victory. Along with a new season comes a new list of achievable goals and a set of guidelines to help the team perform to the best of their ability.

Head wrestling coach and Bible teacher Brian St. James said, “We have had a massive amount of success over the past two seasons under coach Stromie. We are a much younger team this season after graduating 10 state placers in the last two years. My goal for our team this season is to win the area dual tournament and have 4 individual state placers. We have a great group of underclassmen who I hope can gain invaluable experience this season by filling in some key varsity positions.”
