This year, the wrestling team has seen an influx in new and less experienced athletes, but the JV and varsity teams are training hard together to prepare for their first tournament on December 15th at Northgate High School.
Varsity head coach Charles Olaires noted that despite the team being new this year, they have a fast learning curve and are working hard to improve.
“[We have] mostly freshman, sophomore and first-year wrestlers so the learning curve has shifted a bit with only a few returning wrestlers,” Olaires said. “Although we are young and fairly inexperienced, the team as a whole are extremely fast learners and are all hungry to succeed which is key in a successful season. The plan for the rest of the season is to keep grinding it out and keep pushing my team to get better every day.”
The team is also hoping for more wrestlers to even out the team. Aaron Sonnentag, a 3-year athlete of the varsity team said their goals for the current season were to, “get more people on the wrestling team…to fill all our weight classes.”
