Junior Alex Etgen who has a record of 7-1 comments, “In the whole time I’ve been wrestling at Green Hope we’ve been a good team, and this is the biggest team I have seen yet. But, it’s also the youngest and most inexperienced team. Winning the past few tournaments and matches show that we hold a lot of promise for the future- when new wrestlers become veterans and the experienced ones are able to pass on their knowledge, then we will be a great team.”
