After a long wait the team can finally have a wrestling season. The last time Lowry was able to wrestle was in February of 2020. All coaches and players are extremely excited to get back on the mats.

“[I’m] Super-excited about the upcoming season after not wrestling for a year,” said Carson Primeaux.

He knows that they will be quite rusty after the long wait to play, but he knows the coaches will get them ready. As the team prepares for the season they have to stay within COVID guidelines. This makes it hard to prepare as a team, and the team is expected to go on runs, do weight lifting, and do drills on their own.

“We are all just so excited to get back on the mat,” said Brant Corak. “The kids are excited and so are the coaches; it has been way too long.”

The team will go to tournaments every weekend from December through February. They spend a lot of time on the bus traveling to different schools.

“I think as a team we are pretty stacked,” said David Walker who wrestles at 138. “We have a lot of good wrestlers, individually I think I’ll do good this year.”

After sitting out for over a year, it’s hard to know what to expect,” said coach John Brooks. “The wrestlers are working hard and If they keep that up, it will pay off.”
