While the Farmington Tigers wrestling team had a great deal of success this season, one individual's biggest accomplishment came off of the mat. Over the past two years, Matt Clark has embodied the Tigers' mission to develop young men not only as wrestlers, but off the mat as well.
Hastings wrestling has a rich history, but it had been lacking until the end of December when seventh-grader Skyler Little Soldier became the first Hastings female wrestler to record a varsity takedown, pin and win in the history of the program. Little Soldier wrestled at the Bi-State Classic Dec. 28-29 in the 113-pound weight class and went 1-2 in the tournament. All three of the records she set came in her second match against Gabe Weiks of Athens when she got a takedown and then pinned Weiks 44 seconds into the third period.
