The South wrestling team was made up of very young and inexperienced wrestlers.  Considering this lack of experience, the team had a very satisfying season.  They all worked hard and kept improving.  They ended with a strong finish by winning three out of their last four matches.

Data for the 1980-1981 season is incomplete so scores and records are not available.

Head Coach Maurice Webert was assisted by John Newman and John Pacheco.  The team captains were senior Ed Kurschner and junior Tim Topitzhofer. 

Since only two seniors, Brian Rich and Ed Kurschner, are graduating.  The future looks bright.  Juniors Tim Topitzhofer, Cory Hermann, Bruce Tonsager and Kevin Hoglund showed great improvement and should provide leadership next year.  Sophomore Steve LeBre continued a fine career completing his second winning varsity wrestling season.
