Wrestling towards a leaner season

     The Skyline wrestling team finished last season 6-9, and is looking to just surpass last season’s results despite some difficult obstacles.
     “Because of the budget cuts, we basically have to split everything in half,” said James Haddon, wrestling head coach.
     With only a few returning players, including Diwan Williams and Virgil Lockett, to this year’s team, the team’s expectations are mixed. Williams placed 4th in the 125 lbs. division at the state championships. Lockett also had some quality matches in the 133 lbs. division.
     “We got a bunch of young prospects,” said Nik Theotikos, varsity number one and second-year player. “We did a lot of off-season training.”
     The team still has some roster decisions to make before the season starts.
     “I haven’t decided on our heavyweights,” Haddon said. “We won’t be really deep, but we’ll be tough.”
     As the start of the season approaches, the team chemistry continues to rise.
     “The team is a really tight group,” Theotikos said. “We’re all friends.”
