On January 30, 2017, the varsity wrestling team had their senior night against Ft. Zumwalt North and Chaminade. This year’s seniors are Bon Jang, Hunter Collins, and Jacob Smith. Collins and Smith talk about the past four years and reminisce about their wrestling career.

“It was amazing. All the support we got that night from the parents, other students, family members, and my teammates was amazing and just coming out with a personal win at the end of the night was the icing on the cake for me although a team win would’ve been great too,” Collins said.

Collins won his match by outscoring his opponent even though he was wrestling up a weight class.

“I felt like it was just any other normal match that I’d wrestle but I did feel a little more pressured because it was senior night and I felt like I just had to win that match for it to be a successful senior night,” Collins said.

Smith was originally not going to have a match that night but the coach of the other team pulled up a guy from the JV team so they could have a match on his senior night.

“I was really nervous because I had a lot of family there supporting me and I wanted to do good in front of all of them,” Smith said.

Smith ended up pinning his opponent within the first period and Jang didn’t have a match so technically he won his match making it a successful senior night for the three of Collins, Smith and Jang adding to the collection of memories they’ve had throughout high school.

“I’d say my sophomore year when I came back from a month-long knee injury and wrestle at district out of shape and in pain and still managed to qualify for state,” Smith said.
