As most of the school knows it is officially wrestling season! And this season brings so many great beginnings. On the wrestling team, there is a brand new girls team! On that team, they have a great 9th-grade wrestler named Laura Weakley. Laura is a great wrestler and her dad is actually the coach for the SJHS wrestling team. When asked how it was like having a wrestling coach right in her living room she said: “I like having him because I can get extra practice at home or whenever I want.” Wrestling runs in her family so she is pretty experienced. She recently got a black eye during practice caused by her head colliding with someone else’s knee but it isn’t stopping her from working her hardest and most importantly pinning her competition!
