The Lady Cardinal wrestling team faced Frisco Lebanon and Whitesboro in a Tri-Meet on Dec. 15 where they came out on top against both squads. Melissa scored 24 against Frisco Lebanon’s 12, and then 36 against Whitesboro’s 0.


Paige Anderson led the team with two pins, earning 12 points. Lilly Rogers, Benecia Byas, Camille Bogdan, Courtney Chamberlain, and Kayla Stevenson also came away with wins.


“The girls are improving and learning how to win with toughness and technique each week,” coach Rick Gagarin said. “Hopefully by the district tournament we will be ready to get some of these first year wrestlers out to regionals.”


Lady Cardinal wrestling will see action over the district’s Winter Break at Wylie High School in the Wylie Invitational tournament on Saturday, Dec. 17.
