Penns Valley Wrestling


Mason Greene

The winter sports season is off to a start and we will focus on the Varsity Wrestling Team. Last year their team record was 10-6 on the year. The team sent every starter off to districts last year and five wrestlers made it out of districts. Four of the five are returning this season, Hunter Lyons, Ty Watson, Colten Shunk, and Jack Darlington. Out of the five that made it farther last year the only one who placed at states was Ty Watson. The team looks to do better as a team and also individually this year. I was able to speak with Hunter Lyons and ask him a few questions about this year. What are you most looking forward to this season? “ Having fun with the team and the tournaments and enjoying my senior year.” What are your team’s goals for this season? “ Have a winning season and try to win a district title and also have more people move on from districts.” What are your Individual goals for this season? “ Have a winning record and make it to states and places.” I also interviewed senior Micah Good and asked him what he is looking forward to most this season. “I’m looking forward to the season being over and track season starting.” What an honest man. I’ve spoken to members of the team and they seem very confident heading into this season even though there are tough opponents they will face along the way as a team and as individuals.
