As the wrestling season goes on, the team continues to improve and work harder every day. With the team having so many first-year wrestlers great, improvements are being made.

Assistant Coach David Hawks has seen these developments so far in the year.

“All of the first year wrestlers are good, they want to be there and they all want to improve,” Hawks said.

When the season first started, there were only five returning wrestlers. With all of the wrestlers working together and helping one another there has been a lot of progress.

“The guys are working harder every day and they are listening to what we say to try and help them,” said Hawks.

Going into the week Freshman Dallas Larsen had the lead in wins on the team for the season with 27 wins and only three losses. Larsen wrestles in the 106 lbs weight class.

“By my senior year I would like to have gotten at least second at state and have 100 pins,” said Larsen.

At the start of the week Larsen had eleven pins for his high school wrestling career.

The leader for the most pins on the team is currently senior Kyle Goodsell who wrestles in the 195 lbs weight class. Goodsell has 16 pins for this year.

“I am not where I want to be at this point in my wrestling career because everyone has room to improve,” said Goodsell.
