WASHINGTON C.H. — The Hillsboro wrestling team suffered a 58-19 Frontier Athletic Conference defeat last Thursday at the hands of the Washington Blue Lions
The Blue Lions improved to 2-0 in the FAC with a 58-19 victory.
“Our lineup was not our normal one,” Washington head coach Louis Reid said. “I like the fact that we asked our guys to step up and wrestle in some weight classes they don’t normally wrestle in and they did that. They were very successful. It was a complete team effort tonight. Our kids, I feel, weren’t at their best, but they found ways to win. We’re getting tougher in practice. We’re not exactly where we need to be, but they’re getting a lot better in practice. That effort in practice is carrying over to our matches and that’s what helped propel us to the win tonight.”
