Our Section 1 State Team practices at John Jay – Cross River HS for the past two weeks have been going really well. It’s awesome to see so many great wrestlers training together under one roof. At the same time we’ve been making sure Cliff and Kyle have been getting their lifts and conditioning in and have been working with them one-on-one to get them the technical development they need to be at their best!
