RBHS Wrestling

Reece Candler, Staff Writer

For the first time this year, Red Bud High School has a wrestling team. After some persuading by Robby Oliver and Logan Houba, the team was created. The team is coached by Mr. Pipher. The wrestlers on the team are Eddie Miller, Robby Oliver, Chase Ward, Nate Gonzalez, Thomas White, Nate Bleier, Dave Bartholomy, and Pierce Heizer

The team is doing okay this year. The team has won some matches, but would like to do a little better. A struggle for the team this year has been that many wrestlers on the team are new to wrestling, while many of the competitors on the other teams have been wrestling for many years. The team would like to participate in some camps over the summer to improve for next season.

The future for the RBHS is wrestling team is eventually getting better and purchasing a mat of their own. They have been borrowing from Mascoutah this year to practice and compete on. The team wants to continue to get better and will certainly be putting in the effort for now and the future.
