Hitting the Mats

Hitting+the+Mats

Our high school just hosted its third annual Winter Blue and Orange night. While we celebrate a blue and orange scrimmage to introduce fall sports, we also hold one for our winter sports. With the participants of boys and girls basketball, dance, cheer and the girls basketball team, this will focus on wrestling.

Dannah Matzenbacher (’26)  helped set out mats, motivated her teammates and supported all performances taking place afterward.

“Once I put my beats on and got in the right head space, I start feeling hyped,” Matzenbacher said. “And if you want to know my hype song it would be Hotel Lobby, by Quavo & Takeoff.”

Each individual prepares themselves for their match differently, while some are performing at their first-ever Blue and Orange Night.

“My favorite part of the event was being able to support and motivate new members and make them feel welcomed,” Matzenbacher said.

With the increase in advertisements, including both genders on the same night, we could then help expand the crowd at next year’s Blue and Orange Night. So, even though the event lacked a loud crowd, the wrestlers didn’t let that stop them. Matzenbacher started with a single leg, chased backside, broke her down and caught a power half leading to her pin within the first period.

While Mena Southward (’25) had to sit out due to a prior injury, she still went and supported her teammates.

“From the outside look of the overall event, everybody seemed very positive and supportive,” Southward said.

To see more success and achievements from our winter sports teams, you can help advertise, promote and attend games and matches.
