RUSHVILLE – The Rushville wrestling team returned to competition on Saturday, hosting Shenandoah and Shelbyville. The Lions knocked off the Raiders and fell to the Golden Bears.
“We got our first win today against Shenandoah. It was a good morale builder for the team. I am grateful to our wrestlers for giving me my first win as a head coach,” Coach Jim Tush. “A few mistakes cost us our match against Shelbyville. I look forward to wrestling them again in a week and a half. I saw much improvement this weekend, but we still have some bad habits to kick before we can get to the next level.”
