The Whitman wrestling team has opened the season with a strong 4-1 record. The Vikes started out strong with a pair of 78-6 victories over Kennedy and Wheaton. Whitman only lost one bout in each of those duals.
One week after the Magruder tournament the Viking wrestlers met again with the Magruder squad along with a strong Wootton team in a tri-meet at Wootton High School. At that tri the team split, with a lost to Wootton followed by a strong win after a disappointing loss 43-33 over Magruder. The Vikes lost 37-36 to Wootton in a dual that featured 5 pins for Whitman matched by 5 six point wins by Wootton. Whitman wrestlers wrestled to two decisions while the difference came by a decision and a 4 point major decision by Wootton.
Only three days later the Whitman grapplers were back on the mat against an always strong Paint Branch Panther team. Wrestling well the Vikes were paced by pins from Ned Daryoush, Harriet Symington, Jacob Rosenblum, Kevin Baker, Eric Harder, Mike Harder, Alex Hysong, Brad Taylor and Josh Daryoush. Also earning wins were Kevin Whitmeyer and Max Sessions in the dual meet which added up to a 61-15 win.
