Last Thursday, January 19th, the Cowboys had their senior night against the Carbon Dinos. The boys won the duel with a team score of 55-21. This wraps up the Cowboys season and now they look forward to division and state.

The team has a total of 6 seniors. These wrestlers consist of Rylan Albrecht, Ethan Rainer, Brody Ware, Hayden Scott, Foa Maile, and John Ussing.

“Wrestling has taught me how to keep my cool… most of the time,” said Brody Ware, senior, when asked what he’s learned from wrestling. 

Life goes on after high school, when asked about future plans Foa Maile, senior, said “I want to live a rich happy life.” 

With the season coming to a close, many fans came to watch the last duel of the season. When asked her favorite part about coming to the duels, Bentleigh Allen, junior, said, “Just to watch everyone wrestle it out. Just get untangled, get tangled and untangled.” 

The duel had a few unique moments such as; the Cowboy heavyweight (>215) wrestling the Cowboy 215 pounder, and 2 little league kids being able to wrestle with the highschool team at the 75 pound weight class. When asked about his favorite moment of the night, Eric Jex, junior, said, “Probably seeing Damien and Foa Wrestle, that was pretty funny.”

The duel wraps up the season so fans have to wait til next year to watch more duels. The action is not yet over with the Cowboys wrestling at divisions on Feb 2-3. For the Cowboys that qualify for state it will be held on Feb 15-16.
