BOARDING FOR I
DOGS & CATS
South Faces Long Season On Road
BY DOUG RUTTER
If South Brunswick High School's wrestling
team has a successful 1994-95 season, at least
part of the credit will have to go to one of its
heavyweights ? the team bus.
With the Cougars traveling to compete in seven
tournaments and hosting only four dual team
matches all year. South Brunswick will be asking
a lot of the team wheels.
Fortunately for the Cougars, nine of their 13
road matches are in Brunswick or New Hanover
counties. The others are in Fayetteville, Morehead
City, Lejeune, and Socastee, S.C.
"I like to go to a lot of tournaments because
that gets you ready for the regional and state tour
naments at the end of the year," said first-year
coach Ross Little.
Little is a former wrestler at Pembroke State
University and was a volunteer assistant coach
last season at New Hanover High School.
He has taken over the South Brunswick
wrestling program from Don Millwood, who
guided the Cougars to an 18-6 record and the
county championship in 1993 and an 8-11 mark

Little's first team does not have much experi
ence or depth with only 15 wrestlers on the roster.
"We're real young. I have one senior and one
junior and everyone else is a sophomore or fresh
man in their first year of wrestling," Little said.
"We're learning every day and improving every
Little will ask a lot this winter from senior 171
pounder Mike Bethel and junior 152-pounder
"I'm looking for those guys to lead the team
and carry us a little bit. They are the only experi
enced wrestlers we have," Little said.
South hosted Hoggard in a preseason scrim
mage last week, but the Cougars better not get to
used to the comforts of home. Ten of their first 1 1
matches, including five multi-team tournaments,
will be on the road.
The Cougars were scheduled to open the sea
son Tuesday night at home against North
Brunrwick. South will travel to Wilmington this
Saturday for the Laney Challenge Tournament.
The Cougars return to Laney next Tuesday for
a dual team match and again next Saturday, Dec.
3, for the Laney Invitational.
