VHS wrestlers open season Nov. 30

VHS wrestlers open season Nov. 30 The Vermillion High School wrestling team journeyed to Lennox on Tuesday, Nov. 30 to participate in a triangular meet including Brandon Valley and involving both varsity and junior varsity.

Early season competition often has the drawback of weight control and lack of knowledge of each opponent to be considered in evaluating the outcomes of each match.

"We were certainly disappointed in our season-opening performance in the triangular against BVHS and LHS," said Coach Bret Jones. "But we have a long season ahead and I know we will show great improvement throughout the year."
