12/19: Wildcats Finish 11th at Colt Classic

MEDAL WINNERS

2nd Place

170: Christopher Nielsen
Hwt: Michael Frezza






2015-2016 Season Preview
Head Coach: Neil Saunders (2nd Season / 9-12)
2015 Final Record: 9-12
6th Place District 24
5th Place B-South
5th Place Holmdel Holiday
9th Place Colt Classic


Pinelands returns a decent amount of experience, but this is a VERY young team with only a couple of seniors in the room.

The bulk of the starters returning for the Wildcats is in the stretch from 138-182. Chris Nielsen's strong sophomore season may have been overshadowed last year with a lot of the attention on Thomas Poklikuha, but he should be ready to really make a name for himself in 2016. The junior returns on the heels of his 28-win campaign where he placed 3rd in the District at 170. At 138 & 145, Nick Schano and Brennan Richardson return after posting double digit win season in their freshmen years. Richardson in particular had a nice season recording 15 wins to just 6 losses.

Up at heavyweight, Mike Frezza upped his win total from 6 as a freshman, to 16 as a sophomore. The junior has a lot of big man potential and could be ready for a breakout year at 285 with an eye towards 20+ wins and a trip to Regions.

As mentioned, this is a very young team, but not lacking in talent or experience. While it might be too much to expect a team this young to knock off Pt. Boro or Liberty for the B-South crown, especially facing both of them early on in the season, this is a team that should keep getting better as the season goes on and could get on a nice roll and surpassing their win total of 9 from a year ago. Individually, Nielsen should be among the contenders for the District crown, and there's a couple others here more than capable of having strong District runs and punching a ticket to the Regions. A young team worth keeping an eye on.
