Elle Freer, Staff Writer

On Wednesday, December 3rd,Coronado’s Varsity and JV Wrestling Teams competed in their first dual of the season against Castle View High School. Our team won by a landslide and started the season off with a bang!

Angel Flores, 12, was a COS Metro League Champion during last season and started off this season with a great win, which “feels good” and “makes [him] feel like [he is] ready for [anyone] else [he has] to wrestle. At the dual, “the team looked good” and was “hyping each other” up like a family. Angel sees himself taking top five at state and having a great senior season!

Edward Hidalgo,11, said at Wednesday’s duel “the team looked really good” and “everyone was getting on the right track.” For him, starting the season off with a win was a great momentum starter and he predicts “future state champs on the team.”

Our wrestlers predict an amazing and very successful 2019-2020 season and it’s one you will not want to miss!
