The Greyhound grapplers are getting ready to take to the mat.

Wrestling season opens next week when the Greyhounds have a wrestle-off in the Jones County gym at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday to determine who will begin the season on the varsity or on the junior varsity, and who will start the first matches in which weight classes. Admission is $1.

Jacob Crook takes over as the high school’s head wrestling coach this season after serving as an assistant and middle school head coach for a number of years. Chance Scott will be his assistant.

“And we’ve got several of our former wrestlers working with us as volunteers, so we’ve got a good group working to get the guys ready,” Crook said.

He replaces Daniel Lewis, who coached the team for 15 years.

With a lot of experienced wrestlers returning from last year’s team, which won the region duals and sent four wrestlers on to the state individual tournament, Crook is expecting another good season for the Greyhounds.
