The Lady Cardinal wrestling team traveled to Coppell on Dec. 2 to compete against 24 teams in the 5A and 6A divisions. The Lady Cards placed 13th out of the 24 teams. Wrestlers who won matches and placed for Melissa were Makayla Watson with fourth place; Laney Fulenchek with fifth place; Camille Bogdan tied for fifth place; and Hastings Frederick also tied for fifth place.


“The large 6A tournaments represent much tougher competition for the Melissa girls, as many of them get to experience what it takes to wrestle state-ranked wrestlers,” coach Rick Gagarin said.
