Entering the mat during the Lake Central Tournament, Gabriel Tienstra, wrestling captain and senior, had a difficult problem to solve. Grappling with a hand injury, he still managed to win his finals match by adjusting his technique in real time. 

“It was tough to adjust from having two hands to one,” Tienstra said. “I had to switch my wrestling style within an hour to be ready for my next match that day.”

Christopher Bohn, sophomore, also placed first in the Lake County Tournament Jan. 8, having a season record of 26-0. Looking forward, the team prepares for post season, with IHSAA Sectionals Jan. 29. 

“The wrestling season has gone really well and we’ve seen so much improvement,” Tienstra said. “We’ve been working hard everyday and putting in the time and effort in the wrestling room, and it’s seen in our meets and tournaments.”
