Many teammates, both returning and new, are eager to begin their wrestling training this season. As always, the wrestling team tries to set standards and goals for themselves to ensure their improvement and success. As the year progresses new ideas and goals are being brought to the table. These goals include:have reasonable success against other high schools, send one wrestler to the state tournament this season, and be one of the competitive high school teams. The team’s goals are achievable and the teammates are ready for the training. “This season is where we all will work and do our best,” junior Roy McCoy said.

As the winter season progresses, members of the wrestling team are excited for the year due to their overall improvement as wrestlers. “This year we’re hoping to be one of the most competitive high school teams and to have three to four state qualifiers. We can’t be sure until we start competing, but for now, our goal seems achievable,” junior Sam Sharp said. The wrestlers also believe that the practices are going well and the team will to make new improvements by staying focused. “We focus on always working hard and I believe this season we will do even better than last year’s season,” McCoy said.

The coach, Mr. Daniel Morreale has a lot to say about the wrestling team improving and how skills look at practice. “Most of our returners went to camps over the summer as well as dedicated themselves to improving their technique,”coach Morreale said. He has high hopes for the wrestling team because of their preparation as well. “Practice for wrestling is very intense. Wrestling is as much mental as it is physical, so our practices try to prepare us for that.” The team’s goal is to improve in three areas: wrestling skills and knowledge, physical conditioning and mental toughness. “It will take hard work and dedication but we have the talent in the room to make it happen,” coach Morreale said.
