Following the first SPC championship in the program’s history, the wrestling team hopes to continue its success this year.

“We’re watching film and working hard on improving our techniques so we can beat the people we need to beat at SPC. We also work hard in the mat room to make sure we’re in the best condition possible,” senior captain Sean Yuan said. “My favorite moment of this year was traveling with the team to Dallas for state duals. It’s always fun to go up on the bus with the guys and wrestle hard.”

With the loss of key seniors from last year, new wrestlers have stepped up to compensate for lost talent.

“The freshmen have contributed a lot to the team,” Yuan said. “Evan Eisenberg and Austin Schultz are both strong freshmen that have made it into the starting lineup.”
