Greetings Wildcat Wrestling Families – My apologies for missing last week’s update, a few items to catch up on this week.
Aloha and Century Duals – Two tough Dual matches over the last couple of weeks. A 35-45 loss to Aloha and a 51-16 loss to Century. Those were the two toughest teams in Metro this year. Many wrestlers showed some great performances. A nice write up on the Aloha Dual is linked here: Oregon Local News – Warriors ward off Wildcat fast start, finish strong
5-Counties Tourney – This was an amazing tourney with some incredible California wrestlers for our kids to battle against. Overall a solid performance taking 31st out of nearly 90 teams. The team was lead with a 2nd place finish by Joey Coste at 126 lbs. We are very proud of the performance by all the wrestlers. Complete results and brackets are linked here.
