We started the year with 20 wrestlers and ended up with 15 solids. Our numbers were up. We had to turn a lot of grade 5 interest down, hopefully they are just as excited next year as this.
Our coach, Jeremy Ballantine, led our athletes to a very strong performance at the Divisional Meet. Six of our 14 wrestlers won their weight category and only 1 other school performed better when looking at percentage of 1st place finishes.
Throughout the season, success became an operative word, well defined and carved from an individuals personal goals. Every one of our wrestlers experienced hard ship, suffering, and the elation of victory. Every one of our wrestlers will tell you that, after wrestling, life just got easier.
Coach Ballantine and Mr. Blakney are looking forward to another successful seasons next year.
