JONESBORO, IL (KFVS) - The A-J Junior Wildcats Wrestling Club officially began its 2013-2014 season at the Herrin Opener on Sunday, December 8, 2013.
With a team record of 28 wins and 31 losses, it was one of the best opening weekends in the club’s history.
Head coach Grover Mays was pleased with the results.
“We had five beginners and seventeen experienced wrestlers participate today at Herrin and ended up right around .500 for the day, which is way better than any of our other first tournaments of the season,” said Mays. “The kids’ hard work paid off. We still have a long way to go but we are rolling!”
Bad weather forced the Murphysboro Beginner’s Tournament the day before to be cancelled, so a lot of the Wildcat grapplers are still waiting for their premier.
