Our school’s wrestling team has done extremely well, especially considering that it’s only our first year. Every day after school our team has practice from right after school till five o’clock. The practices start with warm ups and agilities for about ten minutes, then we drill for another ten. Once all of that is over with, the coaches teach us our moves for the day. This will typically take up the remainder of the practice. The final ten to fifteen minutes are filled with constant conditioning.
We have wrestled Mapleton, Spanish Fork, Mt. Nebo, and Payson. They have all been really close matches up until we had forfeits. The main reason is that we don’t have enough wrestlers. So now, all of you ninth graders, big guys, and little guys get to practice. We really need these weights or we’ll have to continue to forfeit. We really encourage you to join the team. It may be tough, but it’s worth it!
