The Kayhi wrestling team won at the Haines Invitational Tournament this weekend. Coach Rick Collins said the team did good overall especially with the conditions and is happy with getting a big win before going into the Bill Weiss Tournament.
“We continue to improve and overcome adversity, but saw great improvement in more areas that we need to improve on,” said Coach Rick Collins.
While suffering a big loss to Nick Tipton last year at the Region V Tournament, senior captain Sully Shultz was looking to redeem himself but fell short of three matches to Tipton this weekend.
“Base line is that I need to work harder on bottom, I got in on so many shots on Nick and didn’t finish and rode bottom the entire match. I am dropping a weight class down for Bill Weiss and I’ll see how I do down there,” said Sully Shultz.
Junior Charles Blair has started his wrestling season with a record of 10-0 and is very happy with his wrestling so far.
“It really feels good representing Kayhi by winning matches and improving my wrestling skills,” said Blair.
Coach Collins is ready for this upcoming weekend of wrestling and is trying to overcome the lack of practices that the team has gotten due to traveling.
“This is a tough week for us, but we will be ready to roll and have a great home event,” said Collins.
