Hadley Smith

Hadley Smith has been selected as our Eagle of the Month for May 2016!

Hadley has been attending practices with her brother, Preston, returning from a small break from practice.  She is the type of person that exemplifies what it means to be a Ba'ag Wrestler, by working hard in practice and trying new technique and drills.  She also typically works with her partner to get in extra reps during drills when coaches are helping other wrestlers.

Hadley generally brings a good attitude with her to practice that helps with her learning and is excited to learn new things to help her develop as a wrestler and an athlete.

Congratulations Hadley!
