Coal City Wrestling 1st in State
As a Kid wresting in high school I could think of nothing cooler than this. You are at your senior night. They call out your name cause it’s your turn. You bust through the back auditorium door and with a fog machine having a real WWE kind of entrance. Full of Eye of the Tiger and plenty of stage lights going haywire. As you get up to the stage all the lights in the auditorium turn dark except they throw on the spotlights up front where it’s just you and your enemy about to square off.
If you don’t live by me which I’m most people don’t then you have never heard of Coal City. It’s a small town with a big heart in the middle of nowhere. But like always but more this year than most they have a hell of a wrestling team. They right now are ranked #1 in the state of Illinois with a 29-2 record. Conference titles were given to Alex Friddle (113), Jake Hiles (120), Ryan Wasielewski (132), Danny Norton (160) and Brock Crawford (195), while TJ Jezik (138) and Bryan Stopka (182) were second and Daniel Jezik (145), Cole Garcia (170) and Brendan Nevin (220) took third.
Now it’s time to get ready for the State Tourney so Good Luck Coal City.
