Wrestlers look to build on last year’s success

As the 2013-2014 wrestling season starts, senior Graham Grant and junior Christian Murabito are looking to build on their successes last year.

The previous season’s CCS tournament saw Grant win the individual title at 220 pounds with Murabito finishing fourth at 160 pounds.

Grant has built an impressive wrestling resume in his four years here. He has grown to love the sport, which is reflected in his work ethic.

“I love how as an individual sport, your success is solely determined by the work you put into it,” Grant said.

He thinks the wrestling squad, which is coached by Arnaldo Gonzales Jr.  , is ready for more success.

“We have some very good members on the team this year so I think we can have a big presence at league and CCS,” Grant said. “I personally hope to place at state.”

Murabito, whose older brother, Alfred who graduated in 2012, was an excellent wrestler in high school, wants to continue the family legacy. But, Murabito’s love for wrestling is not only something that runs in the family.

“I love the character building aspect of [wrestling],” Murabito said. “I can control how well I do and I don't have to worry about my team.”
Murabito, too, has high hopes for this upcoming season.

“I think season will go great and I hope to place in state,” Murabito said. “I look forward to seeing how I will do this year.”
