The work continues. We are bringing back, for its seventh year, #TheSeason. We didn’t do these first year, but have ever since. It’s something nobody else does. We compile all season records and write a wrapup for each team.
As we had already updated individual season records for every wrestler for our first team, it seemed logical to begin this year’s series with University Christian.
You can see everything I have on the Christians in 2020-21 here –> UNIVERSITY CHRISTIAN
