Shotwell’s outlook: “With only two seniors on the team, we should be competitive. We have some injuries and situations early on. Hopefully, we can right the ship and wrestle tough.”

Wyoming Valley Wrestling Capsules
Times Leader

Coach: Harold Shotwell, 2nd year

Last Year: 1-5 Division II; 7-17 overall
Key Losses: Kyle Gavrish, Kyle Sorber, Giacoma Bova

Probable Lineup: 106: David Jones, Jr.; 113: Domonick Souder, Jr.; 120: Nelvin Villafranca, Jr., Megan Kocher, So.; 126: 132: 138: Pat Bova, Jr., Krystal Daniele, Jr.; 145: Trey Harman, Jr.; 152: 160: Garrett Allabaugh, So.; 170: John Keefe, Jr.; 182: Derek Fisher, Sr., Jacob Harvey, Jr.; 195: 220: Ryan Zakarauskas, Jr.; 285: Brett Havens, Sr.

Outlook: The team’s potential showed last season when it topped Wyoming Area and ruined the Warriors’ chances of possibly claiming a share of the division title. There aren’t too many wrestlers who have graduated from last season’s team. If the Trojans can wrestle every time like they did in that big win last season, they can pull off a few more upsets this season and make things even more interesting.
