Posted: Tuesday, Nov 26th, 2013

Since Nov. 18, the thud of wrestlers smacking the mats has emanated from the upper balcony in Siuslaw High Schoolís main gym, where coach Neil Wartnik has been revisiting wrestling fundamentals for an underclassman-dominated line-up.

Though this seasonís roster looks to be a bit smaller than last yearís in terms of numbers, you canít tell by the sound of hard work echoing across the gym.

ďItís a smaller group of wrestlers, but itís intense,Ē said Wartnik. ďThey are working hard and showing a lot of maturity and leadership.Ē

Ironically, though the numbers may be smaller, it will be the upper weight classes that will see the most time on the mats for Siuslaw.
