Moberly grapplers want to set themselves up for another strong state run with good results at the super-district tournament which begins Friday night in Mexico. Last year, the Spartans brought home a 4th place state trophy. Coach Charlie Gibbs discusses the mindset of individual versus team at the district tournament.
The Spartans lost to Kirksville 37-34 in the regular season dual. Gibbs expects to battle the Tigers for a team title.
Last year, Kirksville won the district title and Moberly finished as runner-up, but the Spartans brought home a state trophy. Gibbs also believes district newcomer Blair Oaks will be a factor.
Coach Gibbs won his 100th career dual in the regular season finale. He had several wrestlers also achieve milestones.
