Amador spring sports are currently in full swing. On January 25th, AV’s wrestling team had their Senior Night, where they congratulated the teams’ seniors on their successful careers at Amador.

“The impact these seniors have made is tremendous. The impact is not just the wins and losses on the mat, although they all have found great success on the mat, it goes much deeper than that,” said Wrestling Coach, Phillip Peacock. 

Every athletic program at Amador hosts a senior night at some point during their team’s season. This is a chance for the seniors, as well as the coaches and families, to celebrate the hard work the seniors have put in over the years.

“My role as a senior on the team was to offer my guidance and to pass on my wisdom to the younger wrestlers on the team, as well as being a leader,” said Sophia Jetton (‘23). 

This year, there was a whopping 7 seniors on the Wrestling team. Those 7 seniors are Ali Ulusu, Aryaveer Dua, Jacob Cazella, Connor Kreizenbeck, AJ Johnson, Julius Ramos, and Sophia Jetton.

“My favorite part of the senior night was being with my family and celebrating my time at Amador,” said AJ Johnson (‘23). 

The night started off with each senior walking onto the mat with their friends and family, with their coach announcing the things they each accomplished over the years.

“Being with my fellow senior teammates was very special. Many of them I have wrestled with for the past several years. We were saying goodbye with a bittersweet reflection on our wrestling careers,” said Jetton. 

Although this was the official goodbye for our senior wrestlers, their season is not over. All seniors will be competing at the EBAL Tournament and NCS. If they perform well at those tournaments, it sets them up for competing at the state tournament as well. 

“It has been a huge honor to watch them grow. They have matured physically and mentally with hard work and dedication. These seniors’ impact will be remembered by our wrestling team for years to come,” said Peacock.
