Freshmen Jaxson Roberts and Austin Grise will continue their hot streak in Champaign on Thursday, February 14.
The head wrestling coach Rob McIntire stated, “Jaxson has come a long way from the start of the season mainly due to him having such a great wrestling partner that he looks up to in senior Nicolas Rink.”
At sectionals this weekend both competed hard and showed up to wrestle as Jaxson took first place, while Austin took fourth.
Jaxson commented, “I mean it’s nerve-racking but it feels pretty good to go to state. I have to have a hard week of practice and win the first two matches on Thursday and go out on Friday and win.”
