The wrestling team won a dual against DeSoto high school on Thursday, Jan. 24.

Junior Tyler Green won his match in the 182 weight class. Although he believes he performed well, he still wants to improve for regionals.

“In that match, I was patient and I was waiting for my shots to open up,” Green said. “I kept good conditioning and good form, but I really need to work on better positioning on where I am and keep that straightened up.”

Junior Chase Cline took down his opponent in the 145 weight class. He credits the way he practiced for his success in the match.

“We worked a lot at practice and I did my drills correctly, which set me up for success during the match,” Cline said. “I did good on my foot movement and setting up my shots.”

Green believes the team’s practices prepares them for success in their meets.

“Every day we practice as hard as we possibly can and we prepare like it’s a war, so when we face the war, it feels like a practice,” Green said.

In anticipation of his match, Green has a routine he completes each time he wrestles.

“Before I step on the mat, I always do a quick warm up, but I can’t wrestle without saying a prayer,” Green said. “No matter what I do, I just give it all I got and go out and wrestle.”

To prepare for their tournament at Chanute High School on Saturday, Jan. 26, Cline believes the team is going to practice like usual.

“We’re just going to practice hard and keep grinding through the season and get better,” Cline said. “Everyday we practice the same and that’ll never change.”
