JV Wrestling Trifecta
Christopher Columbus High School is known and has always been known for the sports they have excelled in such as football, basketball, and soccer, but some of these other sports teams don’t get the same recognition as they deserve.
Here at Columbus there has been one sport that has been on the back of a lot of people’s minds, and that is wrestling. Every year they host a tournament in the Columbus cafeteria consisting of six other high skilled schools specializing in the sport to try and improve their mindset and skill for the future. “You know its a great opportunity for not only our team to get exposure to the local competition here in South Florida, but it helps everyone else to get better themselves as a team overall as well”, said Andres Gonzalez, Head Coach of the Columbus JV Team. Columbus had eventually made its way past Coral Park in the semifinals to Ferguson, who is no stranger to tough competition. Both teams as the match went on and as the weigh class got higher and higher, the competition and intensity grew and grew, however at the end it was Columbus who came out with the big statement win.
As the wrestling season is just beginning they will hopefully learn and gain knowledge of anybody lessons from the small exhibition tournament. The team will continue to fight for it’s main goal: A state title.
