We were close; almost, but no cigar.

What I'm looking for from these kids is consistency in their wrestling. I'm looking for them to get a little better each day, and I think we're doing that.

We're getting there. The kids are starting to learn how hard they have to work achieve in this sport. We're just going to keep working hard and see where it takes us.

We made a couple of mistakes. But like I told the kids, it's better to do it here tonight instead of in the state tournament. We have a week of practice to clear up the mistakes in time for next week.

I'm happy with the kids. I'm happy with their performance. I'd rather have won and been happy, but the better team won tonight.
