2018-19 Valley Wrestling Capsule


Head coach: Tyler Perry, third season

Returning lettermen: Eight

Top wrestlers: John Baloyot (Jr.), Xzavier Maheia (Sr.), Joseph Valencia (Sr.)

Outlook: Baloyot was the Sunrise Region runner-up at 195 pounds last season and is among eight returning lettermen for the Vikings.

“I am very excited for the upcoming season,” Perry said. “We have a strong group coming back, as well as some great new additions. John Baloyot and Xzavier Maheia represented Team Nevada at the Freestyle/Greco National championships this summer and had a great offseason. We are expecting big things from them and Joseph Valencia this season.

“I also look for Keayon Morris and Martin Lujan to have breakout seasons. With the move to (Class) 3A, we plan to compete for a regional title and bring back some state hardware.”
