In watching our local high school wrestlers compete this season, it constantly amazes me how much dedication it takes from these athletes to excel, or even survive, in their sport.
High school wrestling, I’ve always thought, has to be one of the most grueling sports to compete in. “Six minutes of hell,” is the way I’ve described a match. So much energy is given by wrestlers during matches, I’m amazed they even have the ability to walk off the mat. Sure, some matches don’t go the entire time length, but even so, it’s amazing to see what goes into a match.
Six wrestlers from Barrow County will compete at this week’s Class AAAA state tournament. The state sectionals have been canceled because of weather delays and quite frankly each of our local athletes deserve the chance to be on the big stage.
