“All I’m looking for is that they do their best and give their best effort, win or lose,” he said. “They have a good shot if they wrestle well, but you never know what’s going to happen.”
Advancing five wrestlers to the final weekend of the season is an accomplishment for North, which has shown steady improvement since Henning took over. The T-Wolves moved to a winning record in duals this season after a record under .500 last season.
“We were able to win quite a few duals this season, and I appreciate the hard work from the kids and the support from the other coaches and administrators,” Henning said.
Now, the T-Wolves are trying to take the next step: to move from a strong regular-season squad to one that can bring home multiple state titles.
“To see North come from where it was to where we are now, it’s great to see,” Berry said. “And outside of a few of us, the whole lineup is freshmen and sophomores. To have freshmen make it for the first time from North, that’s something that’s good to see.”
