Head Coach Thomas Smith, "I couldnt be more proud of our guys to be the only single A school to qualify for state duals and then to make it to the championship says a lot about our guys.  I would also like to thank Coach Mcdonald for all of the hard work and extra time that he has put in working one on one with the team.  I would also like to thank Coach Dorminey and Coach Wilkinson for allowing us to borrow a few basketball players for the duals, it says a lot about the relationships between the guys when one of the captains on the basketball team is willing to come out to wrestle only having one week of practice to help the team.
Up next for the Crusaders is the region tournamet where they will individualy qualify for the state tournament.
