Evan Shafer

Senior Evan Shafer competes during the Spartan Classic tournament last season. Connersville’s first wrestling match of the season is scheduled for next Tuesday at home against Knightstown and Union County at 6 p.m.

Like other winter sports, Connersville’s wrestling team is having to approach the season differently than past years. COVID-19 restrictions have brought new challenges that will force the Spartans to learn to adapt to last-minute changes.

With the first match of the season coming up next Tuesday, they will have to make these adaptations quickly.Head coach Mac Taylor explained how COVID-19 has already affected the team’s schedule.
