Wrestling Prepares for Sophomore Season

After breaking onto the wrestling scene a year ago, Belmont Day is prepared to take its program to the next level this winter. Under the tutelage of head coach Brian Laskowski, five wrestlers return from last year’s squad including eighth grade standouts Xander Lightbody, Evan Seymour, and Theo von Gottberg. Joining the veterans is a group of eight newcomers who will add some depth to the experience that already exists. The team kicks off its interscholastic season next week at home versus Lexington Christian.
