    "We were pleased with the three young men that advanced to Districts where competition gets really tough. Kyler wrestled his best tournament of the year wrestling aggressively and staying in good position. Trey and Kaelan ran into some pretty tough seniors from Perry in the finals. Overall the coaches were happy with the progress of our young team. Of the twelve wrestlers we entered in Sectionals, seven were freshman with three sophomores. Some of our young kids didn't start wrestling until their 7th or 8th grade year, so we are hoping these young men will continue to work hard in the off season building for the future of Jaguar wrestling.
