“We are entering tournament time now,” Coach Greg Burzynski said of the current 202122 wrestling season after a match at Abbotsford last week. “Conference, regionals, sectionals, and state are all we have left. We just need to focus on getting better every day and cleaning up some of our technique. Fixing the small things and making small adjustments.”
Meanwhile at present and in other news, new opportunities are arising going forward, with the advent of girls wrestling gaining traction both nationally and statewide. Just this year, in fact, the WIAA held its first awards ceremony. So what about Stanley-Boyd?
“We do not currently have any girls wrestling for us,” Coach Burzynski related. “We have one participating in our middle school program right now and a few in our youth program.” Those who may be interested can contact the team, with lack of wrestling experience not a disqualifier. After all, wrestling as a girls sport, is just getting started.
“Do not worry about not knowing anything,” Coach Burzynski said of those who might be interested in the new and emerging sport. “It is our job as coaches to teach you!”
In the meantime, it’s back to the present. “Our dual record was 5-7 this season,” Burzynski related of the Stanley-Boyd wrestling team this year. “I am not sure we have had our full team on the mat for a single dual due to injuries, sickness and quarantine.”
The Orioles next head to wrestle at Cadott this Saturday, with matches starting at 10 a.m.
