“We had a small team with individual success throughout the season,” Andrew Kimmy, North East head wrestling coach said.
“We had three wrestlers make it passed the first tournament of the post season and qualify for the District Championships in Sharon last weekend. Unfortunately, all three ended their seasons there. We ended the season with seven wrestlers and have six of those wrestlers returning next year along with another three or four wrestlers coming up from our junior high program.”
