Wrestling team opens up with a win

The Boy’s Wrestling team started their season opener at home on November 23rd against Nazareth and Gurin Prep. The bulldogs beat both teams in their opener, beating Nazareth 69-6 and Gurin Prep 45-18. “This year the team looks really prepared and we have a new coach. I’m excited to work with him and hopefully go to down to state again” said senior captain John Schraidt.

 This year head coach Jason Rech stepped down from his position and gave it to William Kucinski. Kuchinski is the new coach he comes from The University of Iowa and wrested for the team throughout college.

Men’s wrestling has been pretty successful sending men to state every year, but this year they hope to send the whole team down. “A regional championship as a team, hopefully a repeat as conference champions,” said Schraidt

This season be on the lookout for wrestlers:  John Schraidt, Eduardo Orihuela, and Keegan Buttimer. Also sleeper Sophomore Vincent Zaccagnini should be watched in the upcoming matches.

The wrestling team has their next match this Saturday December 4th at home. It will be a tri-meet between Hinsdale Central and Veron Hills.
