Lakeview’s wrestling team had a good season, according to coach Todd Barton. “I feel the 2013-2014 season went really well,” Barton said. “I feel we could have done better, but performed well with the amount of young wrestlers we have. The progress from last year to this year has been tremendous. A lot of second year wrestlers stepped up and fulfilled leadership roles. The kids seem excited to be in the room and they enjoy learning and excelling at the sport. When the kids enjoy what they are doing and they have faith in their leaders success will happen.”
