PHS’ Tim Vanni working to get wrestlers a season
State and Central Section championship meets are canceled, but that’s not stopping Tim Vanni from trying to get his wrestlers a match or even a short season.
The Porterville High School head coach said the Panthers began practicing two weeks ago once they were cleared too, and have kept going despite likely being the only East Yosemite League team to field a team this season.
For Vanni, wrestling this season means giving the seniors some recognition and preparing the underclassmen for next season.
“We’ve got a couple of seniors that hopefully we can get at least one dual meet and have Senior Night at our place,” Vanni said. “Maybe, probably wrestle on the road a couple matches. That will help with the seniors getting some recognition...And it will help get those guys back in the saddle for next year that are coming back.”
