“I thought the team improved immensely from the previous weekend at the PVC tournament. The boys have been working their tails off and soaking up our coaching like a sponge.  I was very pleased.  We still have a lot of room for improvement, but if they keep this up, they will peak at the right time,” Keyser wrestling coach Colin Rotruck stated.

Keyser wrestled in a tri-match at Hampshire along with Jefferson on Thursday.
