This Saturday, the Concord wrestling team faces off against Trinton, Jimtown, Bremen, New Praire, and Culver at Bremen High School in Bremen’s Super-Dual. All formidable opponents, Concord however, is not fazed by the prospect of being pitted against the best in the state. Furthermore, they boast the ninth best wrestler in the state, Steven Ross (12).

“Our biggest competition would be Jimtown,” Seth Molnar (coach) said, “they have a stack lineup and lots of veterans.”

Despite this not being the Minutemen’s best season, they feel as they have suffered close losses and that they have left it all on the mat. The team currently has a record of 7-8.

“We have been working very hard in the practice room. We have been drilling everyday, and conditioning everyday,” Molnar said.

Fulvio Desantiago (12) looks fondly back on the season.

“We have lots of coaches, who teach different things, so we get a little of everything.” Fulvio Desantiago (12) said. “I think I have improved a lot, wrestling is just like everything else, the more practice you get the better you are and I get a lot of mat time out of school.”

The wrestling season is coming to an end later this month. After the season ends, the wrestlers will be competing on their own in individual competitions. According to Coach Molnar, about half of the team will go to sectionals and then a quarter will go to regionals.

Though the Concord wrestlers hold a close record there is good faith in the old proverb, “You can do all that you want to if you only put your mind to it.”

Molnar has confidence in his wrestlers, when asked how far he expects the boys to go this year he replied, “[The wrestlers will go] as far as they want to go.”
