“Overall, I thought we had a good year in that we continued to show improvement and peaked at the right time,” commented Titan head coach Brian Mikel. “We still have a lot of work to do in the off season if we want to continue to make strides forward. We more than doubled our win total from last year. We are very young in the lower weights and at heavyweight, and those kids gained valuable experience this year.  Hopefully next year we can improve on the win total and move up in the section standings,” he added.
