“Wrestling is an emotional sport which tends to bring out the best and worst,” said Head Coach and Owner, Dave Andrus. “Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to keep those high and low emotions in check. These actions can negatively impact the outcome of a match. I strive to impress the importance of good sportsmanship on and off the mat. I want my wrestlers to be the ones that others look up to and admire.”

Reeths Puffer hosted this past weekend’s Western Region tournament.

We also had two grapplers travel to the Spartan Country tournament. Our team battled 55 times with 30 ending in victory and placing 13 in the top four.
