The South Brunswick High School wrestling team graduated a region champion and six other talented wrestlers from a team that went 16-13 in Robert Januska first season as head coach.
   Even with those losses, the Vikings have high hopes for the upcoming season. South Brunswick will go with a lineup that will include some talented returning wrestlers as well as some newcomers that will be expected to step in.
   The lineup should look like this:
   At 106 pounds will be Nick Daza (So.) or Jake Stauff (Jr., 1-1 at 106); at 113 will be Michael Klimkiewicz (So., who was 24-13 at 106/113); at 120 Joe Mastro (Jr., 8-19 at 113/120) or Jeff Casey (So.); at 126 Jake Daniel (Sr. 12-16 at 113/120); at 132 Brian DiBartolo (So., 4-2 at 106); at 138 Jon DiBartolo (Sr.; 2-5 at 132/138); at 145 Jared Wojaczyk (So.); at 152 Dylan Nagy (So., 0-4 at 145); at 160 Braden Hess (So., 3-18 at 170); at 170 Tyler Schwarz (Jr., 10-23 at 160); at 182 Max Rhoden (So.); at 220 Ibn Arrington (Sr., 1-0 at 195); at 285 – Gordon Thompson (Sr., 20-14 at 285). The 195 slot is currently open.
   The team did lose District 20 champion Ali Yildiz as well as Constantine Rissiotis, Stephen Teques, Jesse Tainow, Anthony Mastandino, Brian Lee and Carson Hess from last year’s team.
   Klimkiewicz is the most decorated returner, while seniors Daniel, DiBartolo, Arrington and Thompson are set to anchor this years line up. Daza, Stauff, DiBartolo, Braden Hess, Schwarz, Nagy, and Rhoden made contributions last season and will be counted on to compete with the best in the GMC Red Division.
