ETHS wrestling team has many returning seniors this year. Last year the squad had 31 wins and 4 loses. Six members of the squad qualified for the Illinois High School Association sectional tournament.
Co-captains James Marshall-Davis (132 pounds), David Rivera-Kohr (126), Ben Morton (138) and Malik Pratt (152) have returned to form the nucleus of the squad. “Those guys are really driven and they’re my leaders,” said Coach Rudy Salinas. “Their goal is nothing short of The Show,” referring to State finals.
Their performance this year has not disappointed. They have racked up 17 wins and only one loss so far this season. They meet New Trier tonight and then travel to Glenbrook South for the Russ Erb tournament on Friday and Saturday.
