Skyline Wrestling 12/13

2011/2012 Varsity Schedule is complete

The 2011/2012 Varsity schedule is complete. Next season will definitely be an exciting one as Skyline wrestling is set for a resurgence as the return their complete varsity lineup while adding some fresh faces from the middle school ranks as well as the hallways.

This seasonís schedule looks very similar to last seasonís as the young Skyline program starts to settle into some events that prepare them for the post-season while also allowing the newer participants to have some opportunity for success.

Some changes that you will notice are to the Hawkís district schedule. Gone are the weeknight marathon quads to be replaced by an old-fashioned district dual meet schedule that poses one team verses another.

December is is heavy in individual events with the exception of hosting the Appalachian Duals. We start the season with the highly competitive Elite Opener at Skyline.  Followed by the Dudley Martin at Brentsville, the Beast of the East in Delaware, and the Willie Walters at James Wood. 

By January, everyone on the team has had some experience at either the Varsity or Junior Varsity and the line-up begins to settle in for the dual meet portion of our schedule. January is all dual meets with the exception of the Free-Lance Star at Riverbend.  We are returning to Broad Run and Gettysburg. We will also be wrestling our district competition as well as Warren County in a single dual meet format.  We hope to open each of our home duals with a Raptors dual meet and Middle School dual meet.
