Coach Kevin Dill believes that his boys varsity wrestling team will do pretty well as always. As the new faces work hard, the five or six returners are already pushing themselves to accomplish more than last year.

“For the boy’s side Charlie Reed, Thomas Palmer, and Levi Perry-South should do fairly well like they did last year,” Dill said.

Compared to last year, Dill believes there won’t be any pressure. Coaches hold the wrestlers to a high standard and expectations and they also know what they need to work on. One of Dill’s goals for his team is to see them push themselves, and also qualify as many kids as they can to bring home State medals.

Senior Levi Perry-South was someone who made it big last year by going to State and placing sixth. Last year was his first year on the school’s wrestling team, but wasn’t his first year wrestling. He has a strong feeling that he and his team will do great this year.

As he moves up a weight class, he is still hoping he will go to State, just like last year to prove that he is worthy of going there again and is a force to be reckoned with.

“I want to make it farther and farther than what I did last year,” Perry-South said.

Freshman Camden Brown sees a lot of younger wrestlers on varsity. All he wishes to see is his teammates grow and reach their goals. Brown wants to see at least two or more of his teammates qualify for State and take home big medals and trophies.

His ultimate goal is to stay in varsity all four years of high school. He is going to push his limits and condition every day. Working hard and helping his teammates with what they are struggling with the most is something he’s going to be pushing to do.
