Flyer wrestlers grapple with ways to negate forfeits
December 18, 2019


There's only so much a wrestling team can do when there aren't any team members at the right spot, physically, to fill certain weight classes - which is the predicament Maryvale's squad is facing to start the 2019-20 season.

At minimum, coach Dale Striker said that the Flyers are forfeiting at least four weight classes - and the 24 points that come from those "losses" - per match. Some of those holes in the lineup are the result of the inevitable roster turnover that occurs when starters graduate, but the Flyers are also missing a pair of starters from last season due to injuries.

But by no means are Striker or his squad throwing up the white flag of surrender this winter.
