County grapplers return to the mat

(Continued)

Sophomore returning letter winners include Quinn Harris, Caleb Loman, Brendon Helm, Marcus Miranda, Evan Elmore, Tanner Brandt, David Frank, Shane Burgoon, and Austin Woiteshek.

“Our talented sophomore class is poised for a breakout season after gaining experience as freshmen,” Blevins said. “The success of our team will depend on the development of our young talent and the continued success of our returning upperclassmen.”

Tri-West

A strong group of upperclassmen will look to lead Tri-West into the 2012 wrestling season.

Coach Nick Sullivan is expecting big things out of seniors Jon Staton (285), Holden Ottinger (138), and Adam Boles (132) and juniors Carlos Branson (195) and Rick Perry (145).

“The upperclassmen bring a strong, collective leadership to the team,” Sullivan said. “They all have their strengths as leaders and they work well together, to help what is really a young team grow and improve each practice.”

Sophomore Justin Wright returns as a sectional champion in the 120-pound weight class and fellow sophomore Cole Purdy will also be a main contributor this season.

“(They) bring tremendous amounts of energy, but also expectations for themselves and the team,” Sullivan said.

The Bruins will also have some freshman to count on this season in Justin Graham (106) and twins in the 125 class Aaron and Kyle Rose. Freshman Drake Stahl (170) will “bring in some much needed size to the lineup,” Sullivan said.

Because of a low number on the roster, the Bruins won’t be able to fill the upper weight classes.

“Our team is small in number, but various in types of wrestlers,” Sullivan said.

As a result, he said Tri-West will look at individual advancement because of the lack of numbers.

“Without a full lineup, it’ll be hard to compete in the team tournaments, but as individuals, I believe we have several that can make a deeper run into the state tournament,” Sullivan said.
