Improving Baron grapplers preparing for tourneys

Amelia’s varsity wrestling team is settling down and molding itself into a superb squad. First-year head coach Tim Allen is pleased with the progress of his charges.

Said the Barons’ leader, “It was a little rough in the beginning with me having to get used to and knowing the kids and them getting used to and knowing me. Now we’re over that and we know each other and it’s coming together.

“This is a team of hard workers and good listeners. They are a very dedicated bunch of wrestlers. There is a lot of trust and confidence among everybody and the team continues to keep improving every week. I am very pleased with how they are doing.”

Allen mentioned, in particular, three of his matmen who are sporting outstanding records. Senior 112-pounder Vincent Mulvaney is undefeated in 20 matches, sophomore 125-pounder Tommy Fehring is 24-4 and 135-pounder Craig Neal is 25-6.
