 As the wrestling season fires up, Falcon Wrestlers look forward to the upcoming season.  
If one walks past the CB cafeteria on a cold winter night, they will notice the steam on the windows and the determined athletes inside. This is the CB wrestling team and they are conditioning for the wresting season which begins in just a couple weeks.
Each wrestler is taking a different approach in preparation for the upcoming season. CB senior Carter Hafter (’13) states, “I am working out extra hard for this wrestling season.”
“As a team, we do a lot of running and intense squatting,” says Alexandria Glaude (’15). “The goal is to get our strength up and gain more muscle.”
It’s important for these athletes to be sharp not just in body, but in mind as well.
“It’s important to get mentally prepared for the season as well as work out,” says Mallory Velte (’13). “As a team we are working to refine our fundamentals and get well conditioned so we are able to put up a strong fight against our opposing teams.”
This season has a lot exciting things for the Falcon wrestlers to look forward to, with several goals specifically in mind.
“I am excited to go against Jesuit and beat them,” says confident junior Dekari Russell (’14).
While coach, Mr. Bernie Eckel, is particularly looking forward to “the friendships and bonds the team makes.”
“The best part is the comradeship,” he says. “This year we have a lot of new kids who seem to be really enthusiastic which will make practices even more fun!”
With all the hard work put into the practices, the Falcons are sure to dominate the mat during competitions this season.
