The Highlands Intermediate (HIS) Wrestling Team keeps getting better and better. On January 9th, HIS competed at the Maryknoll Tournament, placing 10 out of 11 wrestlers.
What's impressive about the 2009-10 team is that they improve and excel each week while competing against ILH Intermediate Schools that enter 9th graders in the tournaments.
In all, the team came away with 5-first place, 4-second place, 1-third place and 1-fourth place.
