Tonight, an event that happens annually will be held in the Red Gym at MHS. The Winter Rally is dedicated to athletes who participate in sports in the winter months. Sports that are played in the winter are wrestling, girls’ and boys’ basketball, and cheerleading.
Mitch Ross, junior, has wrestled for Marion High School for two years. “I wrestle to keep me in shape for football,” Ross remarked. He is very passionate about Marion Football. He has never been to a Winter Rally before, so he doesn’t know what happens at them. “I’m going to support wrestling,” Ross raved.

Everyone is looking forward to wrestling season, and Ross is no acception. “[I prepare] for the wrestling season by practicing and working hard,” he states. “I’m looking forward to improving my record for wrestling,” he mused. Ross is looking forward to the wrestling season.
