2010-11 Season Preview

Varsity - 2010 Season
Posted Friday, November 26, 2010 by Nicholas Garoffolo

The coaching staff is very excited about this up coming season for many reasons. Last year we had our best freshman recruiting class ever. About half of these wrestlers were first year wrestlers while the others had different levels of experience with the PAL wrestling program. There were also a few with several years of experience like Kyle Decrucio, Ben Brzoski, Peter Clark Matt Lilly and Matt Garoffolo. So this year’s sophomores will give us a good base of talent to build for this year and years to come. We also had a record number of boys go to summer camp which was close to 20 boys counting returning wrestlers and incoming freshman. We also are getting a great group freshman this year that have years of experience with the PAL program. Stand out from PAL are Nick Catlin, Ben Batulanon, Eric Kirchgasser and Jacob Jessen. 

Last years team was also our largest to date. We had around 30 boys on the roster. We lost 5 seniors to graduation and a few did not come back out. The projected number of returning wrestlers should be around 20-25. Returning regular varsity starters from last are Kyle DeCruccio (10), Henry Wales (11), Drue Hallee(11) Will Matson (11) and Clint Kaczegowicz(11). We also had record setting number JV tournament place winners with 7. They Were Kyle DeCruccio, Eshan Dave, Joe Piccolo, Mauricio Xocoy, Nick Chandler, Clint Kaczegowicz and Ricky Coombs. Currently we have 14 new wrestlers this year with 14 all freshman and sophomores.

Henry Wales is our junior returning captain who also placed in the county tournament with a 6th place. Henry has worked very hard in the off season so he can be ready to lead our team toward a winning season. 

We are still going to be a relatively young team age wise with no seniors but we will competitive and we will be gathering much needed experience that will make next years team even better.
