It seemed like only yesterday to coaches Mike Green and Rob Stone that the Wayland Area Wrestling Club hit the mats for the first time this season. Now that campaign is history as the club wrapped up its season by visiting its final tournament at Marcus Whitman on Saturday, March 26. There was great competitive action as WAWC brought home a couple of first place finishes while Adam Green won his 100th match in his career. Those highlights along with a string of rather sizeable trophies will have coaches Green and Stone wondering, “Where in heaven’s name are we going to put all of these things?” Which is unquestionably a good problem to have.
