Wrestling: A rough week for Shorecrest but they showed their mental toughness

Shorecrest Dual Meet Results vs Cascade High School and Jackson High School

A scoreboard captures wins and losses, but sometimes the scoreboard is not a true measure of a team's potential or an individuals' growth. 

Shorecrest lost contests to both Cascade High School and Jackson High School Thursday night by 6 points and 18 points respectively. However, there was still something special that happened on those mats.

It had been a rough week for Shorecrest High School Wrestling. The squad lost a dual meet to Mariner High School last week, its first debut of the season, with many of the athletes rusty from the off-season and not quite ready for competition. 

And then with a school lockdown on Monday and a school closure on Wednesday, there were missed practices and other various eligibility issues. However, despite some holes in the varsity line-up and emerging from a cloud of anxiety related to the lockdown, Shorecrest put its best foot forward.

New to the varsity line-up for the first time ever was Gauge Basile (Sophmore), who loves being on the team, but has not seen much varsity action. Despite his inexperience, he went out into the tough weight class of 138lbs and filled the spot for a team mate who was not eligible. The fact he was willing to make that effort, despite going against far more experienced wrestlers, inspired the rest of the team. 

Other wrestlers new to the varsity line up were Mathew Curtis (Freshman), Aiden Didio (Sophmore) and Connor Carrell (Senior) who showed a lot of effort and improvement last night. All three of these wrestlers deserve a "fire in the belly" award. Carrell in particular seems to have "Drank the Kool-Aid" this year as he has been going into the weight room every morning at 6:30am to work on his conditioning.

Another honorable mention is George Fernandez (Freshman), who weighs in at under 90lbs, but wrestled up to 106lbs to represent Shorecrest against David Fairwell of Jackson High School. Fernandez wrestled tough during his varsity match up and also was able to get some valuable JV experience in last night as well.

The bottom line is this: at its best the sport of wrestling teaches mental and physical toughness. Considering what these Shorecrest athletes went through at school this week, and from what I saw on the mat last night, these kids are definitely benefiting from those lessons.
