Sandcrab wrestlers grapple their way to regionals
Seabreeze wrestlers Merrick Sica (160 lbs), Kyle Flynn (132 lbs) and Chris Whien (145 lbs) finished in the Top 4 in their weight classes at the Class 2A, District 13 meet and will advance to regionals.
Sica and Flynn, both seniors, are the team captains and two wrestlers head coach Paul Shuler said he looks to for leadership.
“They're very good (leaders),” Shuler said. “They’re always on time to practice. They have very good leadership qualities about them, and they’re always making sure the guys do what they’re supposed to. They do their jobs. They’re very reliable.”
All three wrestlers will compete in the Region 4 meet, which begins Friday, Feb. 8, at Martin County High School, in Stuart.
Flynn finished third in his weight class at the district meet. Sica and Whien finished fourth.
