“I like how we look,” coach Jeff Monahan said. “We graduated four seniors, but a lot of the kids coming back played last season.”

Youthful wrestling team building for the future

Thirty-three student-athletes signed up for the squad this season, with 17 of those still in either seventh or eighth grade. There’s no doubt about it, the Panthers are going to be a very young team.
“We’ve got a lot of first-year wrestlers,” Wurm said. “A lot of inexperience, so we’re going with that right now.”
