If an author was to pen a narrative covering the Longhorn wrestling team’s 2011-12 season, it might be best titled “Just keep plugging along.” That’s what the team’s mostly young and untested matmen do as they battle each foe with a spirited determination despite having to forfeit four weight classes and 24 points before action begins. The lack of a full lineup card is tough on a coach, but that has not deterred Casey Woodall’s enthusiasm for his athletes, “The boys are working hard and I definitely feel like we are making progress. “We are just really inexperienced and in a tournament like McClintock, that get’s exposed early.” The tournament the coach is referring to is the McClintock Charger Invitational contested Dec. 16 and 17 in Tempe.
