The MHS Wrestling team faced off against Edenton in their only home match of the season on Wednesday. The final score was Edenton 47 Manteo 18.
Coach Metzinger’s comments:
“If one were to only look at the score it would appear to be a blow out. As a group I feel that we had one of our best days in the dual meet. The only matches won were by the two seniors: Ryan McOwen and William Pendleton but there were some very close matches by the other guys. We were in 4 matches we lost and they were fun to watch. I’m proud of how hard they fought, and the young guys took a step in the right direction yesterday. Thats all I ask of the first year guys.
I really hope next year the ADs in our area will do what is in the best interest of the kids involved in wrestling. For 4 years I have been fighting to get us combined with the 2A league to help solidify our schedule, allow us to have home meets, and reduce our travel. We start every year with zero meets on our schedule and all schools within a 2 hour drive already have their midweek matches set in conference. In my 5 years of coaching the wrestling team has traveled over 10,282 miles due to us not being combined with the 2A schedule.”
