Our kids did well and learned a lot from the tournament. We are still a very young team with very little experience. We are off to lovelock this weekend for another big tournament we are hoping to get everyone healthy this week as we have been sick. We should have 6 wrestlers going this weekend. We then will get a break and come back to Alamo for a tournament and we should be up to 7 kids for that tournament. The kids have been working hard in practice and are improving.”
