It was a message received.
On Thursday night, Dylan Linsenbardt of Helias scored a win by fall in the Crusaders' wrestling dual at Rock Bridge.
But there can be a story behind every win.
"I didn't think Dylan came out with his best effort Thursday," Helias coach Travis Reinsch said. "I had a talk with him at the end of the night and told him we needed to see the best Dylan on the mat in every match."
In Friday's opening day of the Capital City Invitational at Fleming Fieldhouse, Linsenbardt went 3-0 at 120 pounds to lead the Crusader contingent at the tournament.
