Duke wrestling, off the mat

Teamwork isn’t just built during practice or games. It’s also the culmination of interactions and moments away from practice, resulting in shared vision and lifelong friendships. One item my photo story was missing was these moments. This weekend the team had a gathering at senior Jacob Kasper’s house. The team played Xbox, ping pong, and the party game “Mafia“. I had never played Mafia before and was clearly unprepared for the game, evidenced by my fellow mafioso having me killed by the townsfolk early in the game (looking at you, Kasper).

The gathering marked one last chance for the team to mingle before the team would go their separate ways. As it was the start of Spring Break, some of the team would be heading home, others to Cleveland for NCAAs.
