Mules Are Regional Champs and State Bound!

region champsLast night, the wrestling Mules first defeated Saline and then went on to win over John Glenn in the Regional final! While the Mules had a commanding 66-12 victory over the hornets, their 31-28 win over the home team rockets was hard fought and very well earned! Match by match results can be viewed by checking out our twitter feed or our facebook page. The win was possible because of an awesome total team effort with each and every guy battling with all his heart to the very end. Great job, Mules!
