Wrestling goals set high

Posted: December 8, 2013

As the preseason practices begin, wrestlers are gearing up to improve on last year’s success. With only one graduated wrestler, the team has high hopes of advancing wrestlers to sections and maybe even state. “We believe there is enough talent on the team to have at least five wrestlers place in section this year, and have one or two advance to the state tournament,” said coach Aaron Tatone.

The team was a bit disappointed due to the lack of new wrestlers that have signed up so far, but they still expect to have at least 20 wrestlers on the team. Their goal was to get around 30 to 35 wrestlers. Of the new wrestlers that have joined this year, they seem to be liking it. Sophomore John Singletary is one of them. “At first a lot of people hesitate to join wrestling, but after they give it a try they really end up enjoying it. The coaches make it a good experience, and they still work you hard at the same time.”

Tatone said that the team’s co-op with DeLaSalle is “working great…. Once the season starts, the team is one team regardless of the school attended.”
