Saturday, Dec. 20, 1997

With the new wrestling season under way, getting a victory on opening day would surely be a good start. After all the hard work training and preparation for these wrestlers, it was their chance to go into the 1998 wrestling season with a opponent instead of a teammate.

Edgewood hosted St. Joseph in a non-league match and gave the home crowd alot to cheer for with a 42-26 victory. This was a good start for Coach Jim Ingles and his Eagles whose team finished with a 14-5 overall record last year.
