Wrestling: Coach confident freshman will do well for small team

November 28, 2017 — by Mathew Luo and Rahul Vadlakonda

Head coach: Daniel Gamez

Last season’s record: 2-5

Last season recap: Senior Allie Liddle and junior Clayton Murabito were the only members of the team to qualify for CCS. The team ended the season with just six members from an original roster of 15 due to people dropping the sport.

Key additions: Freshman Linus Blom

Key matchups in the upcoming season: Lynbrook on 1/18 and Homestead on 1/25

Star players: Senior Allie Liddle

Key losses: Junior Clayton Murabito, who now lives in another state

League: El Camino

Prognosis:

Although the Falcons had a losing campaign last season, they are looking to rebound this upcoming season with the addition of freshman Linus Blom, who wrestles competitively outside of school. Blom has competed in tournaments all over the state and in an international tournament in Mexico.

The team is still dealing with minimal signups for the sport, but so far has 10 members.

Junior Victor Chen, a returning member of the team, said that the consequence of having a small team is the increased likelihood of losing tournaments because they have to forfeit so many weight classes.
