Coach Shawn Danker provided these remarks about the evening: "It was a busy night for our gyms. We had some good things happen for us and some things we can still build on. It was great to have a home event and use the mat lamp for our kids and fans to experience. We had an exciting atmosphere. The team really reacted well. Thanks to everyone who came out and cheered us on."
The split gives the Chargers a 5-2 dual record for the season. Next up for the grapplers is a four team dual event at Southeast Valley of Gowrie tomorrow (Thursday) night. The wrestling is scheduled to begin at 6 PM. Go Chargers!
