wrestling team split a pair of dual matches at Wednesday's Quad meet at
The Wildcats dropped their opener, 48-20, to Belleville before bouncing back to upend Chelsea, 50-18.
"We looked sharp for the beginning of the year," said Plymouth coach Quinn Guernsey. "Our lineup still needs quite a bit of tweaking, but it was definitely a good start to the year. Tomorrow we'll go back to work and hope to keep improving.
"Most of the guys wrestled hard and pushed the tempo of their match, so we're pretty proud of that. Belleville has a very solid team and we definitely had our chances against them. We'll keep plugging away and hopefully get some more wins this weekend."
The Wildcats will be competing in the Columbia Central Invitational on Saturday.
