Lakewood is another program that is now beginning to reap the benefits of having a feeder program established, as they are welcoming in a small army of freshmen into the room, with several of them coming in following successful careers at the middle school level. In addition to the plethora of newcomers, Lakewood returns eight starters nicely dispersed down low, in the middle, and up top, to give the lineup a nice balance of experience and fresh faces.

With so many frosh, we'll focus on the returners here. Lakewood has three returning senior starters, and they can be found in the lower half of the lineup. Christian Ruiz and Japhet Campollo give the Piners a nice 1-2 punch at 132/138. The two, who have been in the lineup since their freshmen seasons, combined for 41 wins a season ago and provide a solid veteran presence among all of the new faces. The third senior, Alex Martinez, checks in at 113, and is joined by another returning starter, sophomore Yenfry Sanchez as part of the Piners' lowerweights. Also returning at 145 is junior Dymtro Lakusta. These five returners will be surrounded by a horde of frosh all bidding to contribute right off the bat.

Three starters return in the upper half of the lineup. Junior Dante Morris was the team's leader in wins last season with 29, and had some big wins last season. He's capable of having a very big season back at 182 this year. Fellow junior Antonio Cummings also returns to the fold at 152 and will help provide more leadership to the young group in the middle. At heavyweight is Kevin Rybakowski. Rybakowski was impressive in 2017, posting 19 wins as a freshman at heavyweight. He has all the tools to become one of the top heavies in the Shore, and is one to keep an eye on.

The Piners had quite the off-season. The school elected to shut the program down, but with the hard work of their head coach Oscar Orellana, and many in the wrestling community, the program was saved. The team is anxious to prove that it was a program worth saving, and the numbers and enthusiasm certainly back that up. With so much youth, it's tough to forecast how things may go, but the work ethic and excitement is there. The team might not be able to take out Lacey and Pt Boro in the division, but they are looking to compete with the rest of the field and are looking to qualify for the State Sectionals. Individually, the team is looking to improve upon last year's District performance and have the chance to push a few wrestlers into the Regions. Overall, this a young team, and after all they went through in the off-season, it's hard not to pull for the team to have as much success as possible in 2018.
