With the wrestling season underway, the boys’ team made sixth in its tournament last Saturday, Dec. 8 and has a score of [2-4] for dual meets. The team’s main goal is to go further into future competitions with the new year.

“[This year, we plan on] being smarter on the mat, making it to the state tournament and hopefully placing more high up there,” senior wrestling co-captain Miguel Macias said.

Senior wrestling co-captain Maximus Franklin wants the team to keep the positive attitude and take every practice seriously as the boys prepare for their next match on Wednesday, Dec. 12 against R.L. Turner.

“[Because] I’m the captain, I have to keep my patience with them, keep them on the right track [so they] don’t get too involved in outside trouble, [and make sure they] keep their grades up,” Franklin said.

With new members and others coming back from football, both captains want wrestlers to keep their heads focused on learning new skills to be able to give all their effort during their meets.

“Some of these guys have probably never wrestled before and they just need someone to look up to,” Macias said. “Me, Michael and Max try to [do] our best and show them what to do and not be too nervous.”

Head coach Noel Peterson is optimistic that this year’s team will be more focused and dedicated to wrestling as players from football finished their season.

“We need to execute more technique [than] what we’ve done [in the past],” Peterson said. “We’re not wrestling to our potential, [but] we have a match this Wednesday against R.L. Turner so we should do well against them.”
