The Lady Cardinal wrestling team traveled to Coppell last Friday to compete against 24 teams in the 5A and 6A divisions. The Lady Cards placed 13th out of the 24 teams. Wrestlers who won matches and placed for Melissa were: Makayla Watson, 4th place; Laney Fulenchek, 5th place; Camille Bogdan, tied 5th place; and Hastings Frederick, tied 5th place.
“The large 6A tournaments represent much tougher competition for the Melissa girls, as many of them get to experience what it takes to wrestle state-ranked wrestlers,” said Coach Gagarin.
The team will see action next Friday at Carrollton RL Turner against top schools from across the state.
