I was very proud of the aggressiveness the kids showed tonight. Our goal was to attack first, which we did, and to push pressure for 6 minutes which we did. We showed improvement from the weekend, which we needed. The Jeffersonville red devil wrestlers have had a tough schedule. They have wrestled and beat the #1 Ranked team in KY – Trinity. As well as wrestled top Indiana teams – #1 Warren Central, #4 Perry Meridian, #11 Jennings County, and #20 Columbus East. This weekend they will travel to Evansville Mater Dei to take on the #2 ranked team in Indiana as well as Jasper, Bloomington South, Castle, and the returning KY state champions Fern Creek.
