The first meet of the season has been underway. The Hawks took on one other school at the traditional Crawford Invite. The Hawks went into the tournament with not every wrestler.
Three wrestlers did not wrestle, Kolten Marx, Christopher Ray, and Tyler Merritt. The Hawks still went and competed. In the 126 pound class Charles Jerrell Jr. went one and three; these were his very first ever wrestling matches. Levi Ray competed in the 132 pound class and went undefeated with a record of five and zero. Joseph Johnson was in the 138 pound weight class and went four losing in the championship match. In the 145 pound weight class there was Jake Johnson trying his best to win in the higher weight class; Jake lost all four of his matches. In the 220 pound class Stevin Horrocks won all but one of his three matches.
All in all the Hawks placed sixth with only five wrestlers. The Hawks are ready to keep their success going throughout the year. The next meet is Saturday the 14th of December in Gordon.
