It’s been a busy week of practice for our team, even though we haven’t had any competitions in a while. Our coaches are sure to keep our conditioning up where it needs to be so we don’t have any catching up to do the week before sectionals. At our practices, we’ve played a variety of games mixed with hard drilling and conditioning to break up the live wrestling that we normally do during practice. It’s important that we don’t get any injuries before the state tournament.
We are hoping to get another match in before sectionals, possibly against West York. This would be a great way of making sure that our team is still on weight and in shape so we don’t have to do any significant weight loss in the next couple weeks, which could lower performance at the tournament. Having another match could also help out some of our wrestlers with seeding, as well as padding our record a little further, and ending the season on a team win. A higher level of focus is going to be necessary to succeed in the postseason, so I’m glad we have a little break to place our attention where it is needed.
