"I was extremely pleased with the teams's performance in the Lennox Triangular," O'Connor said. "We have several young wrestlers this year, filling varsity positions to help ot the team.We knew we would be giving up 18 to 24 points due to open weight classes.
"Our squad understands the challenge they face to win duals and they met that challenge on Tuesday," he continued. "Raliegh Tiahrt, at 140 pounds, tied the BV score in the final match of the dual. The winning criteria came from the seventh of 14 items in the list.We had more near fall points overall to make us the winner. This was a great way to begin the season!
"The dual with Lennox didn't surprise me," he added. "We did wrestle well, but made some mistakes which Lennox capitalized on. As the season progresses and our roster becomes more finalized, I feel we can eliminate the mistakes and remain competitive."
