DICKSON – The Cougars and Lady Cougars wrestling teams return some fire power from last season’s squad in state qualifiers Tay Payne, Michael Quillen, and Cole Campbell, along with other wrestlers who made strides last season.

Coach John Patterson is happy to have a few more athletes to fill up the weight classes so they won’t have to forfeit as many points as they did last season.

“You can tell by our roster that we are still a young team,” Patterson said. “However, we have larger numbers than we have had in recent years. It is looking like we will be able to fill all varsity weight classes and many JV classes and freshman classes. We also have a nice number of girls again this year.”

At the recent Viking Takedown Jam, the Cougars had seven wrestlers all go undefeated. That list included Sadey Hambrick, Jayden Sutton, Michael Quillen, Cole Campbell, Luke Owens, Gabe Rodriguez, and Dakotah Edwards.

The Cougars also added a new assistant coach to the staff.

“We would like to welcome Dr. Charles Williams to our coaching staff,” Patterson stated. “Dr. Williams has coached at Whites Creek High, Pearl-Cohn and Donelson Middle.”

“We are looking forward to a very competitive year, especially with the filling of our weight classes,” Patterson added. “Last year’s forfeits were the deciding factor in several of our matches. It will be great going into matches not giving away any points.”
