"We had a very slow start on Thursday night in Madison. During our first match against Bon Homme, we struggled with offense and movement around the match," said coach Casey O'Connor. "With Madison, we did improve our offense and overall aggressiveness. This is something that we are lacking at this time.
"Bottom line, we need to be more aggressive on the mat. We need to be the ones scoring that first takedown instead of playing catchup," O'Connor said. "This week our emphasis is primarily to get everyone healthy and prepared for the busy week.
"On Tuesday night, we dual West Central in Hartford. On Thursday night, we dual Canton at home," he said. "We follow Thursday night by hosting a seventh- and eighth-grade tournament on Saturday. On Monday and Tuesday, we travel to Sioux Falls to compete in the Sioux Falls Lincoln Invitational.
