2017 Season Preview

Head Coach: Steve Glawson (1st Season)

8th Place District 24
State Sectional Qualifiers
7th Place B-South
12th Place Holmdel Holiday Tournament

New head coach Steve Glawson takes over a Donovan Catholic program coming off one of their best seasons in years. Last year, the Griffins advanced three wrestlers into the Region Tournament for the first time since 1989, and they are all back. Joined by a handful of returning starters, and a promising incoming group of frosh, Donovan is looking towards even bigger things in 2017.

The bulk of returning talent and experience returns from 145-195, headlined by Donovan's returning District medal winners: Cristiaan Dailey, Conor Panzarella, and Sal DiSalvo. Both DiSalvo and Panzarella punched their Region tickets by advancing to the finals of the District 24 Tournament, while Dailey, who led the team in victories with 31, placed 3rd. Ryan Acosta, the lone senior of the lineup, also returns after a 16-win season. Fellow junior starters Shane Harrigfeld, Brandon Gonzalez, and Thomas Smith are also back, giving the Griffins a pretty nice run in this particular stretch.

Down low, the group will be VERY young. Sophomore Fausto Garcia is the lone starter back, but the Griffins have some very promising frosh incoming, including Tri-County Champ, Cael Rankin, that will look to make an immediate impact.

Over the years, a problem for the Griffins has been a relative lack of experience for a lot of the incoming classes. However, coach Glawson worked real hard down at St. Joseph the last few years to build the feeder system, and now joins them up the varsity level. Things certainly look as bright for the program as they have in quite some time. Overall, this is a young group, but the lineup looks a good as it has in quite some time. The six wins from a year ago is a bit deceiving as there were several losses due to forfeits. With the numbers stronger, if the team stays healthy, look for them to increase the win total in 2017. Individually, you have the three District medal winners from a year ago who have put the work in with an eye on deeper post-season runs from a year ago, and a couple more here that would like to join them. Potential for some good stuff from the Griffins in 2017.
