Nice job
Lets go pokes.
It will be hard
Have 9 guys help just got to get points from all.
Last couple of years we’ve had some guys underperform.

Also, when we get to the championship final round, the second place points are already figured in the team score that is posted. So, when looking at team races, be mindful that the most that a win in the final round will score is 4 points plus bonus points.

Plus, any wrestler who makes it to the championship semi-finals is awarded 6th place points, since he can finish no lower than 6th from that point forward.
