The Shorewood wrestling team is optimistic about a successful season despite a close loss to Meadowdale Monday. Going into the loss at Meadowdale, had the Thunderbirds ranked 14th among State 3A teams based on some outstanding individual performances in tournaments

Leading the team are five senior wrestlers, Daniel Yun, Brandon Leach, Kyle Floresca, Joel Smith, and Taylor Winsor.

Kyle Floresca improved his season record to 24-4 when he won against Meadowdale with his 18th pin of the season.

Leach, who improved his season record to 23-1 against Meadowdale, is ranked No. 2 in the State at 119 pounds among 3A wrestlers. His victory by technical fall Monday added to 20 wins by pin.

Joel Smith has his first 20-win season, with No. 20 coming at Meadowdale.
Freshmen Matthew Floresca and Rikio Campbell have added impressive seasons. Campbell has 16 victories.
