Wrestling Season Starting

By: Kamren Hale

As the shoes get tied and as the knee pads get worn in, the wrestling season begins once again. This season, some people are looking forward to the hard work that leads to the tournaments ahead.

Now that Waynesboro High School has some new additions, it has a bigger team than last year. Since two people graduated and are gone, we only have six returning wrestlers. Having six returners on the team is going to help out a lot. As conditioning goes on and the team preps for the season, they are going to be ready for the upcoming season.

Wrestlers are divided into classes based on their weight. Ty Lafferty is in the 106 weight class , the 113 weight class is Kamren Hale, Seth Showwalter is our 126 weight class wrestler, and one of our heavier weight classes is Michael Smith at 195. Finally Markel Mar is wrestling at 220.

Some of the biggest challenges are going to be the tournaments because some of the other schools are really good. Since we have new people on the team it might be tough to get some points on the board. Goals for the team this year are to win a tournament, and have at least 3 to 4 people go to districts, regionals, and then states.
