Another season has been completed by the Towson High Junior Varsity and Varsity Wrestling teams. According to the coaches, the athletes were coachable and tried hard. Just like any other sports team, these players and coaches faced some difficulties during the season. Coach Biddison says that the majority of the wrestlers were young and that the team “had to overcome its inexperience,” but they never gave up, enduring “tough training” to keep up their stamina.

Wrestling scores are based individual match scores which are added up to make a final score. Even though wrestlers don’t “play together” on the mats, teamwork still counts. At the beginning of the year, most of the athletes weren’t familiar with each other. According to Coach Biddison, soon after the season began, “the team began to trust each other as they gained more experience,” and could often be seen cheering their teammates on. Despite earning more losses than wins – the varsity team finished the season with four wins and eight losses – the team worked hard each match and never gave up.

I had the chance to talk to senior caption Neeko Regalbuto about his thoughts on this season. Wrestling takes a lot of determination and hard work, but asking others for assistance can help a wrestler achieve new mental and physical goals. Neeko looked up to Coach Seran because he is a “great wrestler, good role model, and is willing to help everybody.” Neeko has been on the team since freshman year and he says that his greatest achievement was qualifying for states. If he was able to be on the team for one more year, he said he would “go back and win states.” Neeko plans to continue his love for wrestling in college.

With hopes of a winning season next year, the coaching staff plans to keep building on the youth of the team and recruit more athletes.  If you’re interested in wrestling, contact Coach Biddison.
