N-P wrestlers will foster young team


N-P wrestlers will foster young team

It isn’t the most ideal way to start the season, but with six duals in the first week of the season, Al Forst’s Huskies will be put to the test. And with numbers up from previous years, signs of interest in the program are positive.

It’s the lack of experience that could show through early in the season that Frost is cautious about.

“We’ve got more guys out this year, 20 I believe,” Frost said. “We’re still shy about four classes, which is rough when you give up 24 points in a dual with forfiets.”

To keep the team grounded, Frost will look to No. 5 ranked, 195-pounder Jason Fisher as the headliner this season.

“Jason was one win away from a state tournament last year, so he’ll be the biggest headline for us,” Frost said. “Once we get everyone down to weight, we’ll start to fill the classes.”

Frost said although the team is pretty young, he’s still excited to get the guys out on the matt and start competitng.

“It’s going to be challenging, but it’ll be exciting to see how fast we can get these guys to grow.”
