Wrestlers Reign on the Mat
When asked about this yearâ€™s wrestling team, Coach Jamie Belk said, â€œIâ€™m really happy with the level of intensity our guys are showing on the mat and the character and leadership that they are developing both on and off the mat.â€ As for the teamâ€™s goals for the 2010-2011 season, Coach Belk replied, â€œSimply stated, to win a State championship, but to do that, we have to first win our conference, and then our region. Weâ€™ll take it one step at a time until we reach our ultimate goal of winning a State championship.â€
In addition to the notable records and rankings, a special highlight to this yearâ€™s team are Michael McLamb and Trevor Nelson, who are first-year starters who have helped solidify the Panther line-up. Coach Belk attributes their significant contribution to their dedication and hard work ethic. Good luck Panthers in the remainder of the season and throughout the State playoffs!
