Congrats to Connor, to Bryce, and the whole Hodag team. I've been attending matches since 1984, and this is the most impressive RHS wrestling team I've ever seen. I lay it all at the doorstep of their coach, Paul Ellenbecker who has recruited athletes who otherwise would not have gone out for the team. Carpe Diem, Hodags!
