    December 7 Match

    Unfortunately, the matches didn't go our way tonight! We lost to Dutch Fork 42-30 and to Stover 42-27. Everyone put in a tremendous effort against 2 VERY good teams and fought all the way through! We have a lot to work with and everyone at Hand should be PROUD of this team! We are eager to get back into the wrestling room and back to practice!

    Area Qualifier Tournament - January 8

    Hand performed at our Area Qualifier Tournament January 8. As a team, these guys SHOWED OUT!! We had 5 wrestlers that made weight and were able to wrestle. With only 5 Hornets on the mat, we raked in 60 points to finish 10th in the tournament! We had 3 out of our 5 who wrestled qualify for sectionals next weekend at AC Flora. 
     
    Will McCollum finished 2nd at 114 lbs
    Randal Harper finished 4th at 120 lbs
    Walker Rowe finished 5th at 135 lbs
     
    Coach Gregory is extremely proud of these guys and how they performed. They represented Hand Middle School both on and off the mat with excellence!

    Hand's success on the mat continues! After tallying up the score from tonight, Hand has DEFEATED Crayton by a score of 30-21! These guys were fired up all week for the rivalry match and came out on fire! I know I have said this all season but, this team has worked hard all year and has made a ton of improvement and tonight was further proof of that! Words can't describe how PROUD I am of this team and how much of a privilege it's been to coach them! We have one more match against WA Perry and Irmo next week at Perry to close out the team season. Can't wait to see these guys in action one more time! Attached are a couple of team pictures on the mat and a picture with me and the team captains Will McCollum, Randal Harper, and Danah Alqahtani.
