“These styles are more aggressive, in my opinion, than our normal Folkstyle season.
There are slams and throws that you can’t do in folkstyle that are allowed and encouraged
during this season. Greco is all upper body, no legs can be used. I know that these kids will see
a boost in their folkstyle season after participating this spring and I am so proud of their
dedication,” said Coach Krista Holcomb.

Liberal Wrestling Club will be selling tickets until July 3 for 2 firearms, a Traeger pellet
grill and more prizes such as apparel, gift certificates and more. Tickets are 4/$20 and can be
purchased from any club member or by calling 620-655-3850
