“Another guy to watch this season is Hunter Ford, who didn’t make it to individual state last season but he still won 40 matches and he definitely has his goals set high,” Davison said.”

The new head coach is looking forward to facing off against Fennimore in a non-conference dual meet on Friday, Dec. 18. Stratford has wrestled against Fennimore the past five seasons at team state.

“It’s hard not to be excited to face a team on that level,” Davison said. “With the limited number of events this year due to COVID-19, we wanted a chance for our kids to face a program that has been elite and luckily we were able to make it work with Fennimore. It really is a great opportunity for us to see how we stick up against a really high quality program, and with the uncertainty about what if any end of the season tournaments we will have, it gives us a match that we can train for and be excited about early this season.”

Stratford’s Marawood Conference dual meet schedule consists of wrestling at home on Thursday, Jan. 7 against the Auburndale/Marathon co-op, at Phillips on Thursday, Jan. 14 and at Athens against the Athens/Edgar co-op on Thursday, Jan. 21.
