“It’s the kids' break and unfortunately that lands smack in the middle of our season and it’s important for the kids to stay focused,” Hutchison said. “It presents a lot of challenges over the holidays with weight, practice time and making sure they stay in shape.”
Hutchison said he had a few commitment matters that resulted in not having a larger line up, and combined with some sickness, has made the Cadets “dig deep.”
“Our issues tend to show more than big teams in our line up because we don’t have the depth the other schools do,” he said. “When that happens to us it shows up a little more fiercely.
“Pulling off the two wins is a testament to the work the eight wrestlers here have put in throughout the season.”
