Wrestling Wins

Bobcat Wrestling has had a busy few days. It started Saturday 2/4 at the JV District tournament where the boys placed 2nd as a team, and the girls were the DISTRICT 5-5A champions.

Then the varsity competed on Monday 2/6, and exceeded everyone's expectations. Every athlete competed at high level, and every athlete picked up a win. We ended up with 18 Regional Qualifiers, the most ever for Benbrook. The boys finished with a strong 4th place finish (out of 16), and a short-handed girls team finished 3rd.
