Lowell traveled to O’Connell tonight for our eighth section dual of the season. We came out victorious 54-18 improving our section record to 8-0.
We knew O’Connell’s line-up would be light, but we practice to compete no matter how big or small the team…and that we did winning all our matches by first period pins in an average time of 60 seconds. The only points we gave up were forfeit points for a few wrestlers who weren’t able to compete tonight.
For me, the highlight was Kevin Nguyen (senior, 184 lbs) hitting his opponent with a low single that would make John Smith clap and then running a barbed wire for the pin.
We are now preparing for our final section competition of the season: Galileo at Lowell next Tuesday, Feb. 16, 5pm. The battle of the two undefeated teams. Somebody has to lose, and we have not been training hard for six months for that person to be us.
Come watch Lowell compete against Galileo. Let’s get a packed gym!!!
