Lisbon should have momentum after the Lions rolled to a sweep of 1A State for Duals and traditional state last weekend. The great Lisbon Wrestling tradition is alive and full of excitement. Coach Smith told me in a recent interview that the kids program was looking strong. I see some little brothers and second generation Lisbon Wrestling names on that list. Great sign that the tradition is being passed down. When you see what Lisbon has coming up in the next two years alone, I am very excited about the future of Lisbon Wrestling.
Good luck to all of the Lisbon Mat Pack wrestlers, coaches, and parents. You will have a fan following online worthy of Lisbon Wrestling.
