“It was a rough night but the kids wrestled a lot better,” said Assistant Coach Rob Winkler. “We wrestled with more aggressiveness. We had the first takedown in almost every match even though we lost. We thought the kids did a really good job. They are starting to come around and hopefully we will continue to improve.”
