The WCHS wrestling team grappled with two opponents Tuesday night at Charlie Dalton Gym, facing Tullahoma and Cookeville.WCHS would fall to both visiting programs, first to Cookeville by a score of 54-27 and then Tullahoma by a score of 71-12.Warren County coach Stephen Martin said “The Cookeville match is very indicative of our team’s problems this year. Out of the 14 weight classes we could only fill seven of those. We would have had to win every match by pin and the best we could hope for would be a tie.”In the night’s first match, Warren County showed promise but would fall to Cookeville on technicalities by not having wrestlers for the required weight classes, forcing Warren County to forfeit several key matchups.
