Wrestling 2021-22


Olivia Wells, Contributor

With high school wrestling first making its way into high schools in the 1960s, it is much newer than other common sports such as football or basketball. To summarize, wrestling is a sport consisting of individuals whose scores are counted individually as well as collectively as a team. Using moves such as a double-leg takedown, reversal-switch and near fall-arm bar, points can be gained by an individual to help them, or their team, win the tournament. 


This upcoming wrestling season is nothing to be ignored. Why? This year’s wrestling team, coached by Michael Buhlmann, is a brand new addition to high school athletics at Country Day. With over 10 boys on the roster, this team is eager to begin the season. This new team has been devotedly practicing for their first match coming up in early December.
