DHS wrestling future looks bright

There's an optimism brewing in the wrestling room at Defiance High School, one that started with the hiring of former Defiance graduate Pat Murphy in early summer.Heading into the 51st year of Bulldog wrestling, Murphy will lead the team in pursuit of a WBL title, something that hasn't been done since the 2000-01 season. So far, things are going well considering this is the sixth coaching transition in a span of ten years for Defiance.
