The Paly wrestling team is coming off a successful 2011-2012 campaign which culminated with a fourth place finish at the Central Coast Section (CCS) Championship tournament. They will look to to rebuild following the graduation of a talented class of wrestlers.

The 2012-2013 team returns two individual placers from last year’s CCS Championship Tournament, Trent Marshall (‘13) and Andrew Frick (‘14). Frick is the only returning member who qualified for the state wrestling tournament last year.

The Vikings will be led by dedicated upperclassmen like Marshall, Gary Hohbach (’13) and Erik Anderson (’13). Barring injury the Vikings should make another significant impact at the sectional tournament.

The wrestling season opens on Dec. 1 with a dual meet at San Benito High School.
