Head wrestling coach, Jim Haskin, accumulated his 500th dual victory last Saturday with a 36-31 team defeat of Cambridge High School. This remarkable milestone victory came in dramatic fashion as the Greyhounds trailed Cambridge 31-5 at one point during the match. However, Pope would finish the last four matches with a pin, overtime victory, forfeit, and pin to give Coach Haskin his 500th victory as the head coach of the greyhounds. Further, this victory was for the Region 7-AAAAAA Championship and propelled the Pope Wrestling team into the State Duals tournament as the #3 seed.
It was special to see the large number of colleagues, former wrestlers, and alumni parents along with his former counterpart and former high school coach in attendance for this incredible milestone. Congratulations Coach Haskin!
