Jumping on to the mats the OHS wrestling team has big goals for the season. Getting prepared for the upcoming season, Coach Adam Woitalla said, “We are making sure that kids are getting signed up in time and developing practice plans so we can hit the ground running.” With a new season means new leaders on the team. The seniors stepping into these positions are Peyton Robb, Parker Holton and Parker Westphal. Robb said, “A team goal is to make it to state this year.” The team is hoping to repeat a state run for this upcoming season.
The team’s practices started with captains practice lead by the seniors of the team and has progressed into their regular practices. In order to progress into the postseason the team will be practicing hard to prepare. Albert Lea has moved into the division now and a tough opponent. With a new season lurking ahead there is always excitement. Another challenge heading into the season is there are a lot of spots to fill for the upper weight wrestlers. The wrestlers all are committed to the program and are ready to have a successful season.
