It was a learning experience for the Grant County wrestling team at the 6th Region tournament Feb. 10-11 at Walton-Verona High School.
The first-year program got to learn what it takes to be a competitor as the size and agility of the other wrestlers proved too much for the Braves wrestlers.
“We are going to have to hit the weights hard,” coach Matt Shearer said. “We knew it would be tough here, but we wrestled hard.”
Sophomore Cody Miskell and freshman Austin Gripshover placed sixth in their respective weight classes.
