Beavers need to get healthy for grueling tournament stretch

Aaron Dirks wasn’t a big fan of his wrestlers being out of the practice room for two weeks during the longer-than-usual holiday moratorium imposed by the Kansas State High School Activities Association.

The primary reason is obvious.

Conditioning is essential during the remainder of the season which includes a potential of eight tournaments on eight consecutive weekends for those grapplers who advance all the way to state.

“If they didn’t do what it takes to be in shape over the break, I don’t know that I have enough time to get them there by post-season - not the shape we’ve been in during the past,” says the Scott Community High School head coach.

Equally concerning is the risk of injury for those athletes who didn’t do enough over the break to return in condition.
