Wrestling season preview

Northwest wrestling team opens season with challenging match at South

Undefeated in the city league for four years, the Northwest wrestling team will challenge South tonight at 7 p.m.

“We have about a 50/50 chance of winning at South because they’re pretty good,” coach Eric Prichard said. “But I believe we’re better.”

Prichard says to watch for seniors and state medalists Noah Ornelas, Jared Ross, Justin Onwugbufor and sophomore Devin Onwugbufor. These wrestlers played a vital role in continuing their winning streak last year. Prichard hopes they will do the same this season.

“The goals are the same,” Prichard said. “It’s just a different year.”
