Rob Kirner the Westby Varsity Wrestling Head Coach said G-E-T has a full team, something many schools are not blessed with. The Norsemen are struggling to fill the upper weight slots, putting them at a disadvantage against full teams.

Westby participated in the La Crosse Center Bi-State Classic over the holiday break on Dec. 28-29.

They travel to Black River Falls on Jan. 5.
