Warrior wrestling would like to encourage student-athletes to consider joining the program. There are always room for new members to join. Parents-Guardians should also note that in girls wrestling, the athletes participate in separate tournaments from the boys and practices are geared to where they wrestle against other girls, only. While the boys and girls wrestle during the same season, they are essentially separate teams. For more information on joining, you can contact head coach Desi Lovenguth at 661-972-6255.
