Wrestling program sees success over holiday break

The Lebanon High School girls’ wrestling team competed at one of the country's most prestigious high school wrestling tournaments as the Lady ‘Jackets won the Wonder Woman tournament held in Columbia on December 29-30. According to head coach Matt Neely, the team has seen plenty of injuries and illnesses this year. However, the Lady ‘Jackets stepped up when they needed to and finished with 200 team points, besting second-place Nixa by 39 points. “It was nice to be able to walk away with the team title again,” said Neely. “I knew it was going to have to be a situation where everyone was going to have to step up and perform if we had a chance to repeat as team champions. Winning the title was truly a team effort this year.” For more on this story see the LCR.
