Where They Open
12/17: TCNJ Pride Tournament at Middletown South

 

The lowerweights are anchored by senior Brady Carter. Carter had a huge freshman season, that culminated in a 2nd-place finish season at the Regions, and a trip to AC. Since then, he has dealt with some injury issues. A healthy Carter at 113/120 gives the Lions one of the top lowerweights in the Shore. Senior Mason Heck is also back for the Lions down low. Heck, who was 6-0 with five pins last year, was a Region Qualifier in 2020 at 106. Another senior, Jordan LaValle, returns to the lineup after missing last season. Also back are junior Aidan Ott and sophomore John Downs, who were starters for the Lions last year. Newcomers looking to crack the lineup down include freshman Brendan Schuler, who was a State Medalist at the youth level. Another pair capable of making strong contributions down low are sophomore Matt Gauthier, and junior Hunter Schmidt. The potential is here for this to be a pretty solid group.

A strong, veteran group lurks in the uppers for Lacey. Senior James Circle, a Region Qualifier in 2021, won 45 bouts in his first two seasons. The shortened season likely cost him a bid for 100 career wins. Junior Matt Coon enters his 3rd season in the starting lineup for Lacey, and was also a Region Qualifer in 2021. Senior John Dodaro showed promising in his first year in the lineup, wrestling up at heavyweight for the Lions last season, and will be looking for a big year for himself down at the 215 slot. As for heavyweight, Lacey gets a huge boost with the return of senior Scott Stevens. Stevens, who had some huge wins for the Lions in his first two seasons, is back after missing all of 2021, and gives Lacey one of the top heavies in the Shore.
