   December is often viewed as the holiday season full of relaxation and high spirits, but for Rodriguez High School wrestlers, it marks the beginning of day-long tournaments, matches, and hard work. Our mustangs have already begun to put in the work in practice and preseason tournaments. The possibilities for the upcoming 2018-2019 season for Mustang wrestlers are endless, as the team plans to make success a reality.

   Rodriguez science teacher, Michael Clarkston, is coaching to lead the wrestlers in reaching their goals. When evaluating who makes up the team this season, Clarkston shares that majority of previous wrestlers have come back, but there is also an abundance of new people trying the sport out. The team goals he has set for the season are centered around the hopes of improving daily and sending many people to state. He believes the prospects for the season are positive, as the group he has is dedicated and striving for more improvement.

   Wrestling is more of an individual sport, so we asked some participants what it was that they wanted to achieve the season and what the team was like in their eyes. Rodriguez senior Angelina Ferrer and junior Emma Lopez have a common personal goal of making it to state this year. Regarding the team itself, according to junior, Connor Dikitanan, the season should be good as “everyone is working hard.”

   Kicking the season off right at their first tournament in Elk Grove, Rodriguez junior Riley Alemania took third for the mustangs in duals. Great job to Riley, as this tournament is regarded as one of the hardest of the season. Keep up the hard work and positive attitudes mustangs and have a great season!
