“I want to finish my final season with a winning record. I’d also like to see us win our important divisional matches, and I would like to place in districts.”

— Senior Jake Magley

Point Pleasant Boro Wrestling is coming off of a hot 2019 season, going undefeated in all B-South match-ups and having an overall record of 11-7. Although Boro graduated some very important seniors, they have no shortage of talent coming from the incoming class of wrestlers and the experienced group of underclassmen from last year, as well as returning varsity wrestlers Ty Bailey, James Latendorf, and Jake Magley for their senior campaign. Although they’ll face stiff competition from inter-division rivals like Lacey, Boro looks to successfully defend their B-South Title once again in the 2019-20 season.

Jake Magley, stepping back into the sport after his junior year hiatus, looks to have a strong comeback after going 14-14 as a sophomore and provide a leadership role for the younger wrestlers. Magley will certify 138, providing veteran experience to the middle of the lineup. Jake gave his thoughts on his goals for his final season, “I want to finish my final season with a winning record. I’d also like to see us win our important divisional matches, and I would like to place in districts.” 

To get better everyday… To improve yourself each time you step onto the mat.”

— Coach Brady

Once again, Coach Brady and Coach Grainer are at the reigns of this team. When asked about the goals coming into this new season, Coach Brady said, “To get better everyday… To improve yourself each time you step onto the mat.” With the majority of the team being young or inexperienced, it is a main focus for the team to improve one day at a time.

We also caught up with Coach Grainer and asked him about any individual wrestlers on the team that he has high expectations for. He said, “I would say Lucas Torre and Charles Latendorf are two guys to look out for this season. Last year they split time at 106 pounds. I would expect both of them to be in the lineup at different weights full time. Lucas Torre specifically was undersized for 106 last year, and now he is going to have to cut a little to make weight. I think he is going to have a much improved season from last year and people are going to get to see how talented he really is.”

Make sure to come out and support the wrestling team at their home opener against Ocean Township, December 19th at 6:30 pm in the High School gym. It will be the first look at what is expected to be another champion season for Boro wrestling.
