SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The South Plainfield Varsity Wrestling Team is approaching the upcoming 2015/16 season much like any other year. The Tigers look to repeat as Red Division Champs, GMC Champs and District 12 Champs. The Tigers will be returning nine starters from a team that won the Central Group III Sectional Championship so South Plainfield has hopes to go far in the Group III State Tournament.

The Tigers finished last season ranked No. 20 in the New Jersey Writers Association final poll. With a successful freshman class, the Tigers are prime to set their goal on a Group III Championship.  Keeping the schedule challenging will have South Plainfield battle-tested and prepared for post-season wrestling.

Incumbent state qualifier and captain, senior Dan Hedden, will help lead the 2015-2016 South Plainfield Wrestling Team. The Tigers will also look for leadership from their seniors, Chris Maszczak (captain), Nick DiFrancesco, Ryan DuHamel, Christian Gonzalez, Dion Pender, George Pittenger, Jeff Plungis, Nick Ruzika, and Josh Stasenko.
