Where They Open
TBD

Circle The Date
12/22: Quad v/ Freehold Boro, Steinert, and Hightstown  -  The Piners had some strong numbers last year, and return a good number. This pits some similar sized schools against one another and will give an early gauge as to where Lakewood is at.



2019 Season Preview


Following an offseason where school officials elected to shut the program down, hard work and persistence enabled the program to be saved. That hard work carried over to the mats, and the Piners set a new school record for wins in a season. With much of last years team back, and the offseason work to improve put in, Lakewood is hopeful for even better things in 2019.

Down low, sophomore Ivan Lopez was a bit undersized at 106 last season, but has grown into the weight and is looking to have strong year for the Piners back at that weight this season. Jose Becerril, Yenfry Sanchez, and Rene Garcia were all starters as underclassmen a year ago, and are looking for big things in 2019 with the year of expereicne under their belts. Incoming freshman Rasul Allen enters the lineup after a very strong intermediate school career.

In the middle, Lakewood are led by the senior trio of Miguel Arenas, Dymtro Lakusta, and Antonio Cummings, who combined 60 wins last season. Miguel Mendoza saw a lot of action as a freshman, and after a hard working offseason, is looking to make a name for himself.

The Piners should have a great 1-2 punch at 220/Hwt with senior Dante Morris, a returning District Champion and a State qualifier who recorded 34 wins a year ago, and junior Kevin Rybakowski, a 19-bout winner at heavyweight as a freshman, who missed all of last season with an injury. Joining them in the upperweights are a trio of sophomores who all started last season in Gustavo Limon, Gustavo Saavedra, and Angel Gonzalez. Gonzalez is another one who put a lot of work in the offseason and could be in store for a breakout season.

With the experience they have returning, and the work they put in during the offseason, the Piners are looking to top their record breaking win total from a season ago, while cutting down the losses as well. They look to move up in the Division standings, to qualify for the Sectionals, and to have several individuals make strong postseason runs.
