Head Coach Brian Leggett says they’re ready to stack a win.  

We had a good day today, wrestled five tough matches and finished up with a good Indian Creek team and got a win. We have some guys out of our line up, but we have some depth in our line up and some other guys were able to step in and fill those shoes. We didn’t miss a beat.
