Wrestling: Indians stacked in the middle

by: CORY MIMMS - Austin Keller, in red, breaks free of his opponent's hold during practice.With only one key loss and several key returners, the Indians could have an excellent season on the mats.

“I have great expectations,” Coach Anthony Keller said. There’s a good possibility that Molalla will be competitive at the district level, as the Indians only graduated a single wrestler last season: Duke Hebdon, who wrestled at 126 pounds.

Several key returners will help them through the season, along with two new coaches who add to Keller’s expertise and will help Molalla be a definite force on the mats.

However, the bulk of the Indians’ talent is in the middle weight classes, while the team is thin on the lower weight and upper weight divisions.

“We’re stacked in most weights from 120 through 182,” Keller said. “We’re looking for lower weights and upper weights, but we’re loaded in the middle of the road.”
