Daniel Hernandez – Mustangs Ahead

sports logo(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS Boys’ Varsity Wrestling team went to district playoffs Saturday. The team had eight wrestlers move onto Regionals this upcoming weekend at Osceola High School. 

The teams’ District Champions were Colby Keane (160 pounds) and Angelo LaFrese (220 pounds). The team also had Matt Monahan (152 pounds) finish second place and Logan Wright (113 pounds), Cam Schilson (132 pounds), Brandon Herten (145 pounds), Ranson Coons (170 pounds), and Anthony Salerno (195 pounds) all finish in fourth place in their weight classes.

Underclassmen Chaz Campano, Simon Thomas, Aiden Zimmerman, and Kaden Franke unfortunately did not go through to Regionals, but will have another shot in districts next year.

Senior Jamal Aoudi has been on the wrestling team for three years. Coach Patrick Ancil has recognized Aoudi’s commitment to the program over the past three years.

“I want to recognize Jamal Aoudi who finished his three-year wrestling career as a Mustang. Although the day didn’t end up the way we had hoped, you will not find a more passionate and dedicated wrestler,” said Ancil.
