“This tournament was a very tough test for our team,” said Panther head coach Ben Chapman.

“It [tourney] had some of the top schools in the state and most brackets had at least four guys ranked in the top 10 in their division. I think this intimidated some of our younger wrestlers and we started the day a little slow.

“We are going to learn from our mistakes and get better. We have two weeks to prepare for the conference tournament and that’s what we are focused on.

“Overall as a team we need to have better defense and not be afraid to push the pace of the match earlier,” said Chapman.

PHS will compete in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference Tournament Feb. 7 at Waupun.
