Tartan Wrestling VS. COVID

While many other teams continue to pull out from tournaments in all sports due to COVID related concerns Tartan Wrestling has remained on the mat for the past few years without any major issues involving COVID.

Coaches have done a wonderful job enforcing the mask policies when they are required and making sure that everyone is following protocol.

The Titans hosted an individual tournament originally inviting a total of 8 teams, 5 teams dropped out of the tournament; 3 being COVID related. This unfortunately made the match count quite short at the tournament disappointing many people including participating wrestlers.

The Titans have had a successful season so far including at the “Mustang duals” on January 15th at Mounds View High School, followed by Senior night hosted by the Titans on January 20th came with much success as well. Captain, Alex Johnson (Sr.)  says, “As a team we’ve been working hard, we go out and compete with every team we match up against.” The Tartan seniors Jose Jaurides, Alex Johnson, Caleb Laframboise, Jackson Dupris, Landon Arends, Anthony Recchio had an exceptional night with 6 pins across them all.

The Titans have had an exceptional season so far and are staying healthy and on the mat.
