Fresh off of a fifth place finish at the Baltimore County Championships last year, junior captain Carlos Lovo is hungry for a State Championship this year.
“He put in a tremendous amount of training in the off-season, working out with the Maryland National Team at clubs and camps and we are very excited to see his improvement this season,” varsity wrestling coach Scott Asher said.
Lovo believes his key to success this year is his heightened focus on adapting to his opponents’ strengths and weaknesses.
“I analyze how my opponent moves to figure out what kind of wrestler they are and then I wrestle them using their weaknesses,” Lovo said.
Lovo is also proud of his mental control during matches, noting a match last year against Towson, who the team will face Dec. 22.
“My opponent was fighting dirty the whole match but I was able to keep my cool and defeat him,” Lovo said.
His teammates praise his abilities on and off the mat.
“He has a lot of great leadership qualities and everyone looks up to him,” junior Hunter McDonnell said. “His confidence and determination have rubbed off on us and hopefully they will during this season as well.”
Regarding their potentially most difficult match of the year against Owings Mills, Lovo has high hopes for the team.
“I am most proud of the development of the team because we have many more wrestlers this year with sheer, raw talent. I truly believe we can do it this year,” Lovo said.
