Hartselle Youth Wrestling back on the mat
The Hartselle Youth Wrestling program is back in action, as the squad will compete in six tournaments from February 7 through March 14.
The team consists of 27 wrestlers, a little small, according to head coach Kenneth Romager.
Romager is assisted by Vu Pham, David Metz and Danny McCravy.
Several members of the Hartselle High wrestling team who once came through the HYW program have returned to help the team this season.
"We are thankful for the help we receive from the high school and the elementary schools to allow us to run this program," Romager said.
