    An interview with Bulldog Wrestling Coach Justin Stratton

    From that, we went on to wrestle more good schools like Eldon, Knob Noster and Adrian. We started to get better at that point.

    Lady Bulldogs stop Adrian 59-43

    Head Coach Beau Swopes said Tuesday that in the Monday night game at home against Adrian, “The girls started out slow, but picked it up in the second half of the game last night against Adrian.”
