Varsity wrestling fell to the Boulder City Eagles, 72-12 on Wednesday, Dec. 5. Freshman Spencer Brock and senior Andrew Olson both had first-period pins and put some points on the board for the Cougs. In the 120 pounds division, freshman Maxwell Larson lost but still picked up two points.

“In practices, we practice on the mats to get the technique down,” Jase Brock, sophomore, said. “We also do strength and conditioning in the weight room. At home, we have to watch what we eat and mentally prepare for matches.”

The wrestling team defeated the Canyon Spring Pioneers, 54-12 on Wednesday, Dec. 5. Varsity faces the Green Valley Gators on Tuesday, Dec 11 in an away match at 6:00 pm.
