In the first FHS home wrestling match of 2018, the Falcons hosted neighboring schools Deshler and Muscle Shoals. While FHS took a loss against Deshler, due to some weight class forfeits, the Falcons won six out of eleven head to head matches. FHS looked extremely impressive over Muscle Shoals, winning four out of seven head to head matches. Of the ten FHS wins, nine came by fall (pin).
Seniors, Bryant Hardin and Jacob Gentle, dazzled the crowd with Hardin’s quick pin against Muscle Shoals and Gentle’s roaring slams over Deshler. Sophomore, Alejandro Navarrete quickly flopped on his opponent from Deshler, pinning in a blink. Freshmen, Ty Threet, Carson Casteel, Joseph Auchly, and Joseph Grijalva all took home pins along with eighth graders Seth Puryear and Colton Persell.
