Tiger wrestlers start strong, stay strong
The Morris Area/Hancock/ Chokio-Alberta wrestling team had its best start in several seasons and finished strong in 2011-12.
"The kids were strong at the end of the season," said second-year head coach Troy Ostby. "Our goal was to get kids to the third period. If we could do that, we'd have a chance."
The strategy worked, as the Tigers won many matches in the final seconds. Those wins helped the Tigers reach their pre-season goal of making it to the final four in sections.
