It’s like night and day for the St. James High School wrestling this season as far as experience goes. Last season, the Tiger wrestlers were a veteran bunch that ended up sending seven wrestlers to the Missouri Class 2 State Tournament. From that large group of state qualifiers, however, six have graduated and the seventh may miss the entire 2018-19 campaign with injury.
