AUBURN MOUNTAINVIEW AT A GLANCE
COACH: Adam France, seventh year
LAST SEASON: Finished 20th at the Mat Classic 3A championships.
BOYS VARSITY ROSTER: Matt Howard, freshman, 106 pounds; Giovanni Hermeyer, sophomore, 120; Brandon Perry, senior, 126; David Boone, freshman, 132; Jordan Slavik, senior, 138; Nick Helms, junior, 145; Allen Sura, senior, 152; Erik English, senior, 152; Josh Walker, junior, 160; Marcus Cosby, junior, 170; Ray Azevedo, junior, 195; Alex Harris, junior, 195; and Dakota Weir, sophomore, 285.
OUTLOOK: The Lions return Perry, a senior who competed at last season’s Mat Classic. Also back are Slavik, Wier and English, all with regional tourney experience. Beyond that, the Lions look to gain experience quickly on the mat. Unfortunately, the SPSL 3A is not the kindest league to gain experience, with perennial powerhouse Enumclaw, first in the 3A ranks last season, and Bonney Lake, eighth at state last year. “We have some hard working and talented athletes, but we’re young,” France said. “We are working to build our base of young wrestlers while helping our experienced wrestlers move on to the next level.”
KEY MATCHES: The Lions will test their mettle at defending state 3A champion Enumclaw on Jan. 12 and travel to Bonney Lake on Jan. 19.
