Lake Roosevelt wrestling coach Steve Hood explains that while basketball players can shoot hoops most any time, and football or baseball players will play their sport to practice on weekends or in off-seasons, wrestlers don't have that option. For them, freestyle tournaments keep them in shape and in practice for their winning moves.
Last weekend, Eagle wrestler James took fourth in his first freestyle, and this weekend Eagle wrestler Jesse placed third in his first freestyle tournament at North Central High School in Spokane. Thanks to our wrestling coach, Victor Camereno, and to the boys' families for providing this opportunity, which is not part of our school program.
Congratulations, Jesse and James.
