The Pingry Wrestling team is looking forward to their season, despite the current situation regarding COVID-19. This season marks a change in leadership as Marcus Brotman (VI), Sean Lyons (VI), and Jack Martin (V) have been appointed as the new captains. Coaches Keith Karsen and Zachary Wakefield are both returning for their second season with the team, along with Coach William Lagarde. Last season, the wrestling team had many strong showings at events, including the Trimeet and District Tournament. 

“There was a lot of growth for all of the wrestlers,” according to Captains Brotman and Martin. “The team really came together during the season. It has been exciting to watch the new freshmen develop.” While the new season will certainly be unusual, the team hopes to perform well this upcoming March. COVID-19 may alter the course of the season, but the wrestling team is ready to work hard and handle business as close to usual as possible.
