I thought we wrestled well for this part of the season, we need to continue to get in better shape and wrestle through the scrambles of the match rather than one move at at time.
Four of our wrestlers will head to northeast Ohio to compete in the Walsh Ironman Tournament, widely considered the most difficult in-season tournament in the country. Walker Heard, Jake Marsh, Tyler Bates and Tyler Connolly will begin competition Friday at 1:00pm. Two of the Monarchs earned pre-seeds for the tournament Jake Marsh 7th at 152 and Tyler Connolly 8th at 285. The rest of the Monarchs will travel to Sparta Highland to compete in the Kilted Klassic invitational.
