Wrestling season recap
by: jonathan perez, senior writer
In the last game of the season, the Hillcrest Wrestling Team came out victorious against Springfield Gardens High School allowing them to finish with a 4-4 record. The season ended on a positive note even with the ups and downs due to not being able to field a complete team.
It was an exciting season for the Hawks with many obstacles to overcome. The team continually dealt with not having enough members to compete in each weight class. Even with this handicap, the team was able to not only compete with other schools that had full lineups but scored several victories as well. The team finished 5th in their division. While they defeated Springfield Gardens and Robert F. Kennedy, they got blown out by the division’s toughest teams in Cardozo (8-0, first place) and Francis Lewis (7-1, second place).
There were some several star wrestlers on the team. Captain Moroni Guevara won all 6 of his matches. Junior Farhan Zaman won 6 of his 7 matches, and senior Isaiah Campbell won 5 of his 7 matches this year.
Head Coach Mr. Beauzile and Co-coach Mr. Kaufman both expressed that they both believe that the team had a good year even while dealing with roster issues.
