COACH: Dennis Herren, first year

LAST SEASON: 6-1 in South Puget Sound League North 4A dual matches. Second at SPSL North 4A sub-regional tournament. Finished 11th at Mat Classic XXIII.

BOYS VARSITY ROSTER: Balteer Rana, freshman, 106 pounds; Brian Alonzo, senior, 113; Cameron Hiller, sophomore, 120; Tyson Galliac, sophomore, 126; Bailey Minnar, freshman, 132; Patrick Shine, senior, 138; Christian Loomis, freshman, 145; Tilden Sansom, senior, 152; Josh Tate, junior, 160; Seth Mizoguchi, junior, 170; Stephen Heinz, 185; Adam Garcia, senior, 185; James West, junior 195; Michael Ridge, 220; and Tavis Greenwood, senior, 285.

OUTLOOK: The Trojans return two state placers from Mat Classic in Alonzo, fifth at 103, and Sansom, seventh at 145. “It’s a hard working team with good senior leaders and ambitious underclassmen,” Herren said. “Wins won’t be handed to the team as it doesn’t have the returning state champions we have seen on Trojan teams of the past. This team will need to put their hearts into every practice, dual and tournament on the schedule with the hopes of bettering themselves each day if they want to enjoy the Trojan tradition of success in wrestling.”

KEY MATCHES: The Trojans get a test this weekend at the Tri-State Tournament at North Idaho Community College. Auburn hosts the all-SPSL Tournament Dec. 29-30. Auburn hosts powerhouse Tahoma in its final regular-season dual at 6 p.m. Jan. 25.
