Extracurricular of the Week: Wrestling

Since wrestling kicks off their season this weekend with the boys JV tournament in Warrenton, this week’s extracurricular of the week is wrestling. The wrestling team has been working hard at practices since November 5th, and is very excited to kick off their season soon. Unlike most sports, with wrestling, athletes are required to weigh in so they can be sorted into weight classes and they must also pass a hydration test. Athletes who wrestle are sometimes required to lose weight in order to meet a certain weight for these weight classes. Sophomore Maddy Gerholdt says, “Wrestling is a lot of hard work, but it is really worth it in the end.” As previously stated, boys and girls wrestling has been practicing hard since November 5th with their season beginning this Saturday at the boys JV tournament in Warrenton. Wrestling will wrap up in mid to late February of 2020.
