Weigh-in: Corry and Eisenhower


Coach (season/record): Greg Barnett (2nd/6-5)

2011-12 overall record: 6-5

2011-12 region record: 6-4

Top wrestlers lost: Levi Catalfu, Zac Morris, Cody Bailey

Top wrestlers returning: Ryan Morris, Shane Taubert, Tim Suydan, Alex Suydan

Assistant coaches: Jarred Johnson, Brandon Edwards

Outlook: The Suydans and Taubert each won at least 15 matches last season and along with Morris will represent the backbone of a team that lost some firepower with the graduation of Catalfu and Morris, both District 10 champs last season, and Baily. Taubert went 18-12 last season and lost in the district consolation semifinals. He is expected to compete at 170 pounds. Tim Suydan, who was 18-last season, advanced to the district semifinals at 220 and is expected to be back at that weight. Morris (10-7) and Alex Suydan (16-17) each won a match at districts. Newcomers include former PJW state qualifier Jonathan Hammond (projected at 120 or 125) and Mark May. Barnett, in his second season at Corry, believes the Beavers will be competitive and show improvement as the season goes on.
