We would also like to send a huge congratulations to Justin King who earned his 100th career win this evening! Heck of an accomplishment, J King!
We learned some things about ourselves tonight. We had our stamina tested and had some matches where our lack of positions was exposed. We had to rely on each other’s performances to get the win even when things didn’t go our way.
We have a fantastic group of hardworking wrestlers. I’m blessed to have them. Even when some of our guys dropped a match their focus was on immediately understanding how to fix what went wrong. That is a sign of maturity. I’m extremely proud of them.
The Cardinals will be back in action at the Sandusky St Mary’s Super Duals on 1/29 against Milan Edison, Genoa, Archbold, Norwayne and Sandusky St Mary’s.
