This year, the high school wrestlers have strived for their best and practiced hard for their upcoming season. Wrestling is a tough sport.
“I have had lots of challenges in wrestling. I broke my leg practicing for a meet once, but I overcame it by doing a lot of physical therapy, and having a good mindset on what next year will hold,” senior Rubin Strait said.
The wrestling team’s first meet will be on Nov. 9th, throughout the season they will attend regionals and meets to compete against many different districts.
“Being a State qualifier has changed my reputation from my freshman year, because I only won one match, but being a state qualifier this year has definitely changed my mindset and view in a positive way,” junior Jade Bellew said.
With numerous competitions on the way, wrestlers are encouraged to work as a team to further support one another.
“The Wrestling team is like a family. I believe wrestling can help them achieve something they never thought they could. I am very excited about this year. I have the best senior leadership I have had in three years. overall they are the hardest working group of kids I have, and I believe by the end of the year we will accomplish something amazing and succeed at becoming a pretty good team,” Coach Timothy Cook said.
Being a wrestler comes with a lot of responsibility, and is a sport that requires energy, time, and dedication.
“My advice to future wrestlers would be to start young. You are going to want to quit, I kind of want to quit sometimes, but you got to keep pushing through, wrestling is a love hate sport because of the hard work, but it is all worth it,” senior Michael Martin said.
The group incorporates community based activities into their wrestling careers. These activities further support and help fund the team.
“Wrestling participates in community activities. At Fair on the Square the wrestling team supported the youth wrestlers by selling parking spots to raise money for them,” senior Christian Ruiz said.
Wrestlers are kept in good shape, encouraged to have a healthy diet, and are helped to maintain a stable mentality.
“This extracurricular activity helps keep me in shape, by weight lifting, practicing and going to meets, which is important for physical health along with mental help,” senior Kade Cahill said.
