It was a familiar story for the Apalachee High School wrestling team Saturday.
The Mat Wildcats competed at the Madison County Duals and emerged with a sixth-place finish against some quality opponents. AHS opened the weekend with a match against Commerce, a team Wildcat coach Jim Stoudenmire has a high level of praise for.
“Commerce is tough in a lot of spots,” the AHS coach said. “What makes the matchup tough is their strengths are at spots where our strengths are. We also had a few wrestlers out of town for the holidays.”
