2016-17 Arbor View Wrestling Capsule Preview


Head coach: Rusty Marchello, fourth season

Returning lettermen: Ten

Top wrestlers: Peyton Prussin (So.), Tristian Gallagher (Jr.), Micky Marchello (Fr.), Dawson Downing (Jr.), Lawrence Vigil (Sr.), Ryder Marchello (Jr.), Coby Tucker (So.), David Ornelas (Sr.), Matthew Alejandro (Sr.), Donovan Sutton (Sr.), Canyon Rivers (Jr.)

Outlook: Downing, who likely will wrestle at 126 pounds, was a Division I state champion last year. Ryder Marchello (138) placed fourth in the state meet, and Gallagher (113) and Ornelas (152) were state qualifiers. Alejandro (160) won a state title in 2015, and Vigil is a two-time state qualifier.

In short, the Aggies have plenty of talent and experience.

“Arbor View wrestling intends on contending for a state title having finished third in the state in 2016,” Rusty Marchello said. “We will also attempt to repeat our performance as the Northwest League and Sunset Region champions.”
