Coach’s Season Outlook: We are excited about the upcoming season.  We have been working hard to prepare to compete to the best of our ability.  We have a number of kids who made great strides in the off season. We will be looking to our seniors to provide the leadership needed to continue to grow.  We still have a lot of work to do if we hope to be competitive in the PAC, the best wrestling league in District One. The PAC is loaded top to bottom with talented coaches and outstanding wrestlers.
