Winter Sports

The fall season is over and now it’s time to welcome the winter season in and the sports that come with it—basketball, girls swim and wrestling. All teams have started their practice and are getting ready for success this season. The first event for both the boys and girls wrestling teams was a scrimmage here in Marshfield at the junior high gym on November 18, 2022. For both basketball teams, they had a Marshfield jamboree with Waynesville and Fair Grove on November 15, 2022. The girls swim team has their first meet on December 1, 2022.

In the past, all teams have been successful, most even sending athletes to state, like the boys wrestling team who has four returning state qualifiers from last year—senior Erik Tomanek, sophomore Tanner Davidson, senior Tommy Mynatt, and junior Marcus Gritts. One thing that most teams seem to share in common is winning the Big 8 conference. The girls wrestling team has won it four years in a row, and their main goal is to work harder to continue that streak. 

“My favorite part is seeing the girls when they find success and how happy they are whenever that happens,” basketball coach Katie Pritchard says.
