Hawk Wrestlers Compete at County Tournament — The SRHS wrestling team recently competed in the Palm Beach County championships. Hawks broke into the top 10 teams with an eighth-place finish and four wrestlers earning trophies. Congratulations to Mitchell Clark (170 pounds, second place); Nelson Sutton (285 pounds, third place); Juan Hernandez (160 pounds, sixth place); and Matt Susich (138 pounds, sixth place).
