Boys Varsity Wrestling, Girls Varsity Wrestling · Wrestling Has Hopeful Future

The wrestling season has officially started. We have a very young team this year with only a few Seniors, but very promising Freshmen. Last night we faced two seasoned teams in a doubleheader with McCallum and Dripping Springs. The boys lost both matches, 21-36 and 30-40. Not bad considering some of the guys have only had one week of practice. Leading the boys is Tiger Tejero and Robert Rodriguez. On the girl’s side, still with a very young team, Akins completely dominated McCallum. The only win they had was by forfeit, 40-6. Leading the girls is Daisy Tapia, Brenda Cancino and Katerina Pena. The highlight of the night was freshman Leslie Mejias of NT Academy, who pinned McCallum’s 2-time State Qualifier Adriana Boortz.
