2016-17 Rancho Wrestling Capsule Preview


Head coach: Ian Summerville, first season

Returning lettermen: Five

Top wrestlers: Elvis Tlaxca (Sr.), Alex Arnone (Sr.), Leiana Nacapuy (Sr.),

Outlook: Summerville inherits a team that returns only five letter winners, but has plenty of promise.

Arnone (170 pounds) was a fourth-place finisher in last year’s state meet. Nacapuy (113) was a girls freestyle All-American last year. Summerville also expects big things from Tlaxca (132).

“Last season, we qualified four wrestlers for the state tournament,” Summerville said. “This year, we are striving to place in the top five at the region tournament while qualifying seven or more wrestlers for the state tournament this year.”
