Carter Wright wrestles ‘perfect match’ says coach
WDC sophomore wrestler Carter Wright won his first match in spectacular fashion this morning at the 2015 State Wrestling Tourney at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
When Principal Church announced over the intercom that Carter had won his first match, 7-1, cheering could be heard throughout the hallways and classrooms!
Wrestling Coach Norm Gallant had this to say about the sophomore’s first match at State:
“Wow. Carter wrestled an absolutely perfect match. He was calm and cool as a cucumber,” said Gallant, adding, "It’ll get tougher now, but to even win a match down here is great. What a neat thing this is."
Carter's next match is scheduled for 5:30 pm this evening against Ben Baumgartner of Park Rapids. “He is 38-0 and a real stud,” said Gallant.
But if anyone can beat a “real stud” who’s 38-0, we'd put our money on Carter. He’s got his underdog mojo going on!
