The Calhoun High School wrestling team is off to a positive start in its quest for a 30th straight winning season.

Class AA-A coaches have selected the Red Devils as the third best team in a pre-season poll on www.wvmat.com.

Coach Mike Stump begins his 23rd season as head coach. His dual record is 279-55-6, including 167-13-2 since 1999.

CHS opens its season at the Brooke Classic, at Brooke High School, Wellsburg, on Friday at 5 p.m. and on Saturday at 10 a.m. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students per session, or $12 and $8 for two-day passes.

In addition to Class AA-A’s number one ranked Oak Glen, it includes several other West Virginia ranked teams, and also teams from Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Calhoun will have to replace three wrestlers lost to graduation: Sean Gungle (4th in state, 135 lbs.), Nick Stevens (5th, 112), and Jeremy Conley (qualifier, 152).

Those three combined for 94 of the team’s 402 individual wins.

The Red Devils return four state placers and three other qualifiers.

Ben Laughlin (champion, 145), Cody Clark (3rd, 130), Caden Arnold (5th, 171), Tim Sutro (5th, 189), Zach Hanshaw (119), Austin Moore (125) and Aaron Yoak (160) helped lead the team to a third place finish in the state tournament last year.

It was the eighth time in nine years that CHS has finished in the top four. In 30 years, the Red Devils have finished in the top 10 in Class AA-A 26 times.

Last year’s team included 15 wrestlers. This year, Stump will attempt to fill the 14 weight classes with 16 matmen.

Finishing out the roster are senior Christian Cottrell, juniors Mark Bedree, Aaron Dawson-Jarvis, Dillon Richards and Justin Yeager, sophomore Seth Wease, and freshmen Ricky Allen, Levi Gordon and Jared Haught.
