The 2019-20 season marks a new beginning for the Centennial Wrestling program. The Eagles start their season this year without four-time state champion Jason Kraisser. It will be the first season in 14 years that a Kraisser will not be wrestling for Centennial.
However, the team still has valuable Varsity experience. Top wrestlers senior Yusuf Mehboob, juniors Chris Lee, Ibaad Shaikh, and Matt Harris, and sophomore Nick Shapiro all return to the team this season.
On Thursday, December 5, the wrestling team lost their home opener match against Oakland Mills High School by a score of 45-28.
Junior Charlie Schmitt and sophomore Moiz Subir won their match. Also, Mehboob, Shapiro, and Lee were all victorious.
The Eagles had to forfeit a match in three different weight classes which is part of the reason Centennial lost the match.
The wrestling team continues their season on Tuesday, December 10 when they face Long Reach High School and Atholton High School.
