Justin Habiger has compiled an 11-13 record so far this season, as the only wrestler on Barat Academy's team.
Editor's note: This story has been updated. Coach Jim Hill's name was previously incorrect.

For Francis Howell Central senior wrestler Terrel Wilbourn, it's been nearly a month since he's last competed in a match.

Wilbourn showcased a few explosive takedowns …
