PREP WRESTLING: Meridian preview

CAPSULE

Coach: Chadd Little

Outlook: Little, in his first season, is one of the many coaches facing the challenge of a young team this season. Eight freshmen are penciled in on the varsity lineup card, but the Trojans do boast state-experienced wrestlers in senior Harris Larson (125) and junior Nathan Oliphant (130). “We have a young team this year. But with being young, we are coming off from a strong middle school season last year, and building off that into our high school season this year,” Little said. While the team doesn’t have staggering numbers, Meridian always fields a number of strong individuals, and Little said he is pleased with the team’s leadership and attitude.
