November 2016 Lady Lions Win Powderpuff 3-0
2015-2016 Class M Wrestling State Champions
It took a strong team effort to pull off this amazing accomplishment. Three Foran wrestlers are state champions in their individual weight class: Gino Esposito, Michael Ross, and Luke Edmonson. The hopes of the team for a state championship came down to the last match, featuring Luke Edmonson. In dramatic fashion, Luke pinned his opponent and secured the state championship for Foran! Other accomplishments in individual weight classes: Ryan Luth, Noah Hubler, and Qasim Khan finished second, Jubilee Witte was third, and Will Mauro placed sixth.
The entire team deserves credit for their total commitment and teamwork; they worked toward a goal and made each other better. None of this could happen without the leadership and expertise of their coaches. Head Coach Dr. Dave Esposito, Assistant Coach Noel Luth, and Volunteer Coach (former head coach), Frank Peters all deserve congratulations for a job well done! These dedicated coaches taught our wrestlers not only how to win, but how to persevere, work hard, and win with class. Congratulations to the entire team on this tremendous accomplishment! Lion Pride!
