TMS wrestlers have impressive showing

 


On Saturday, the Thermopolis Middle School wrestlers were on the road at the Worland Invite, and racked up 107 points.

Coach Toby Emery stated, “The past couple of weeks have been tough. The boys have been battling, trying to stay healthy. With that said, the ten wrestlers that we brought to Worland really did wrestle well. I was especially impressed with our younger, less experienced wrestlers this weekend. They seem more comfortable on the mat and have been on the attack more.

“All the boys have elevated their game and had some great matches. Our hope as coaches is that they learn from their mistakes and work hard to correct them in the practice room. We have a lot of work to do before conference. Getting healthy and mentally prepared will be our priority.”
