Coming off three losses last week in the St. Louis metro east area and with five Western Big Six Conference duals looming this week, the Blue Devils went through what senior Jimmie Tedeschi described as the toughest practice of the season. The goal was to ensure every wrestler was in the right frame of mind for what promises to be a grueling week.
