HOLSTEIN - In the words of Aurelia-Galva-Holstein coach Scott Phelps, the AGH wrestlers "gave a good effort all day," in Saturday's Maple Valley Conference Tournament here.
Phelps said, "We were in many tight, hard-fought matches - some of them we won, and others we lost, but the coaches were happy with the effort. We put 10 guys in the finals, but didn't get the job done in the finals, which we needed to do to win the tournament."
"The kids continue to work hard, and give everything they've got every time out," continued the coach, "and that's all we can ask of them."
