The JV Viking Squad participated in two tournaments over the Holiday break. Our JV squad turned in some impressive performances at both the Wootton JV Snowbrawl on December 27th and our very own Viking Quest Tournament on December 29th.

The Viking Quest was a much larger tournament and included 12 Montgomery County Schools featuring Whitman, Northwest, Magruder, Walter Johnson, Quince Orchard, Watkins Mills, Churchill, BCC, Einstein, Rockville, Sherwood and Wootton. The wrestlers were divided up into 31 weight groupings with Whitman wrestlers finishing in the top two spots in nine of them.
