Sparta is off until Thursday when Sparta finally wrestles a dual at home against La Crosse Aquinas. It will be the first home dual since the Dec. 18 dual against Holmen. After the dual against Aquinas, Sparta will host the Spartan Invite on Saturday.
Mike Montgomery is going to live blog the Aquinas dual so check back here throughout the week for details on that. The live blog window will be up the day before and you can sign up for reminders.
Congratulations Spartans on your showing at the Freedom Tournament. This is considered a top ten tournament in our state. Kudos to Tom, Kevin and Derek for their top placings.
The team has come together and is wrestling very well. Good luck at Lacrosse Aquinas and the Spartan Invitational. Best to each and every one of you!
