Wrestling Preseason Article

With several students participating in the wrestling preseason going on, anticipation for the first tournament is high. Currently, 5 members go to the track after school to practice endurance and raise their cardio, as well as work out in the weight room to get stronger, in preparation for the season. We surveyed 2 of the 5 wrestlers and their answers were very interesting.

One wrestler, Matthew Valdez, described his previous wrestling season as “litty”, and he said he would do it over and over again. He is very excited about preseason starting, he entails, “It is increasingly difficult everyday, but I am getting stronger and faster each day”. He cannot wait to, “Destroy people on the mat”, when wrestling preseason is over.

Another veteran wrestler, Leaaron Santos, has wrestled for 4 years now and aspiring to go to state this year. He describes his previous wrestling season as “buffening” and he has grown 10x stronger. His goals for this upcoming wrestling season is to, “Give every other school the ‘donk’ “, which means he will get a win every match and all the other schools will lose to him. When asked why he believes not too many people wrestle, he responded with “I guess some people can’t handle the intensity of the sport, they might be intimidated”.  

The team is confident in the ability of themselves and their coaches. So with morale high and practices already tough, it’s looking like a good season for the boys and girls in the Desert wrestling team!
