The Winter sports season is upon us again, and sports like Ice Hockey and Basketball immediately come into mind, as they are the most popular teams in the school. Everyone follows their seasons, but meanwhile there are unsung athletes that don’t perform in front of a sea of cheering classmates. One such team is the Darien High School Wrestling team, who while they are not as welly known as the hockey, and basketball teams put in just as much time training to prepare to perform in big games. While they went a disappointing 0-7 to finish at the bottom of the East Division last year, the team remains optimistic about their chances to have a better season this year. Wrestling is a growing sport in our school and in state wide competition, as our team had great freshman participation last year. The wrestling team hopes to continue to grow and become a force to be reckoned with on the state level in the near future. The future of wrestling in Darien High School is bright, and there is nowhere to go but up.
The wrestling team kicks off it’s 2017-2018 season on the 13th of December, away at Morgan High School. Good luck to the team, and go Blue Wave!
