WARDSVILLE, Mo. - The Blair Oaks wrestling program has been on a steady rise the past few seasons, and the Falcons would like nothing better than to continue that trend.

Of course, when there's only one thing left to accomplish, that's kind of a lofty goal.

Blair Oaks is coming off its best season ever, as the Falcons notched their highest finish ever by coming in second in the Class 1 state tournament, and the now-graduated Craig Clark won the school's first-ever individual state title.

The Falcons start that daunting task of moving up to a first-place finish when they begin the season today at the Knob Noster Tournament.
