My only concern this week was the lack of finishing matches when we were up big. That is something we need to work on.
This week, we travel to Rifle to dual the Bears. This will be a very tough test for the team, but we need to keep wrestling to get prepared for the tough regional tournament next week. Then on Friday, we will be in Meeker, but we will dual only Coal Ridge.
