Wrestling workouts and tryouts will begin Oct. 29th, and with more new faces on varsity than returnees they will have to go back to the basics in order to build their new team.
With few returning wrestlers; the Wrestling team this year’s team will be a young group. And the goals will be different.
No goals have been set yet, and the coaches want to focus on conditioning the new varsity wrestlers. Chase Frank ’13 and Kaleb Moiser ’13 are seniors and team captains this year.
“We have a lot of people, a lot of seniors that graduated last year that were really a huge part of the varsity”, said wrestling head coach Mr. Brad Frank.
On the wrestling retreat they will set their goals for the new season trying to qualify some wrestlers at state.
“We do have some seniors that we have very high goals for,” Mr. Frank said.
The team is looking at Varsity wrestlers Moiser and Frank to make state finals in their weight class.
The team is expecting a large turnout of freshman as they have every year.
“Sometimes what we have to do is we go to the freshman; if there are some kids that are really good we’ll ask them, hey wanna come to varsity for a couple matches,” Chase Frank said. The freshman will come to Varsity for a couple matches to see if they like and if they will stay”.
“It’s pretty much the same; we will always have the stuff we are going to do; we try to make sure everything works with everyone”, Chase Frank said “Getting into state is more of an individual thing because you have to win a tournament, well place at a tournament to get in, so were trying to get everyone ready to go”
