Little Axe Looks to Get a Few Wrestlers on the State Tournament Podium for the 2021-22 Season

Robert Gray is in his third year as the head coach at Little Axe and the staff and community are excited about what their team brings to the table.

Elizabeth Mullendore is ranked #19 nationally and arguably the favorite to win the state title at 145. The girls’ team also has 120 lb freshman Ainsley Jennings, who the staff has very high expectations for as well.

On the boys’ side, they haven’t had a state champion since 2011, but have high expectations for Chad Kriz. Kriz was a state qualifier this past season and returns to the 220-pound weight class with a lot of motivation to make the podium this season. Robbie Hughes and Lane Gourley are two that have dealt with some injuries previously, but if they can remain healthy could also make some noise at the state tournament.

The team is in a tough district with defending champion Marlow, but are hard workers with a supportive staff and community that believe they can do some big things this year.
