maybe cinderella wears 15EE wrestling shoes
i got a couple requests for a wrestling update, so here's the quick version.
good news: the happy overachievers from mounds view advanced to the state's final four at excel center wednesday.
bad news: they face defending champs apple valley tonight at 6:30.
valley hasn't missed a state tourney in 25 years, so they live up to their decades of dominance motto. regardless of the final score, however, i know the boys will rise to the competition. i'll be hoopin' and hollerin' for tor to close out the night with a solid showing against mike dralle, valley's fine senior heavy. the winner gets hastings or anoka in tomorrow night's championship; the loser gets a third-place match at 10 am.
unless coach dan has 14 pairs of glass wrestling slippers in his truck, he'll need a heck of a pep talk to beat valley. i'm no coach, but i'd tell the lads to just turn it loose, tear it up, and remember psalm 23: yea, though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no evil.
