The Granite City entire program from fans, to coaches, to wrestlers, the officials(special shout to female official Barb Brummet who did an excellent job) to the concession workers were all first class from the moment we stepped in the building. More northern teams should go south. We were told we are the first north of I80 team to come down and wrestle them, Why I wonder? Oh well, off to the Oakville duals in the morning. Later.
