The 1983-1984 South Wrestling team was second in the city conference with a 5-1 record.  Overall, their record was 10-3, including theor one point liss in the first round of Regions.

Their success, according to co-captain Bob Schneider, was due to the excellent coaching of Stan Skavnak, a South High Math teacher.  He turned a losing team into a winning team in two years. 

Ezell Voltez thought the team could have done even better if South was a wrestling school.  :We have great coaching, good talent, just not enough wrestler, “ Voltez said. 

A major reason for South’s one point loss in Regions was that co-captain and State hopeful , Jim Martin, had appendicitis late in the season. 

During the season, Assistant Coach John Jurisch was Mr Skavnak’s right-hand man.
