Heritage Hall went 20-5 last season, losing in regionals. But it returns six players who played significant minutes last season.
“I guess being the small team that we are you wouldn't expect that, but we've always had high expectations for us considering that we've had returning starters and this year we practically have all five,” senior Carter Cloud said.
TUTTLE HEADING TO BROKEN ARROW
Tuttle's wrestling team will have a tough weekend ahead, wrestling a tri-meet at Broken Arrow that also includes Allen, Texas, and wrestling in the Tulsa Union tournament.
Tuttle is the four-time defending champion in Class 4A, Broken Arrow is the three-time defending champ in 6A and Allen has won three consecutive state titles in its class in Texas.
“It kind of lets us know immediately where we're at and what we need to work on,” Tuttle coach Matt Surber said. “Early in the year, we want to see where our weaknesses are and where we stand. Our ultimate goal is to win state in our class, and this helps us find out what we need to do to get there.”
Surber wrestled in college with Allen coach Jerry Best.
