Coach Matt Chambers said it was great to see 8 of the 10 wrestlers place in the home tournament. “I thought they wrestled well throughout the day. We were a little inconsistent still and lost some close one or two point matches that we could have won. I hope they get a little confidence from this tournament and see they can compete with anyone,” said Chambers.
