Railroader preview: wrestling

T he Whitehall varsity wrestling program enters the 2010-11 season knowing it will have the biggest meet of the year on its home mats.

The school will host the Section II/Class D tournament in February, and will look to have several members of the team who will compete for the Class D title as well as a spot in the state tournament.

The Railroaders will be led by three-time state qualifier in junior Zach Diekel, who will look to continue to improve on his Albany finishes with a deep run in the state tournament.

Also hoping to return to Albany are sophomore John Diekel, who finished in sixth place at the 2010 event, and senior Grant Gebo, who fought through several injuries to post a 1-2 record at the state event.

Al Aubin returns as a defending Section II/Class D champion, and will look to advance to the state tournament for the first time.

The Railroaders open their season on Thursday, Dec. 9, with a home meet against South Glens Falls.
