The Menominee Indian High School senior class is leaving its mark on the wrestling program.
Head coach Kirk Bahr is eager to see what the four seniors can put on the mat in their final season.
Antonio Mahkimetas, Lenny Warrington, Kyle Komanekin and Leander Moon have been acting as role models for the rest of the team.
“Those four are the ones I’m expecting big things from, but we are going to have surprises from a couple of other kids,” Bahr said.
The seniors are not only leading on the mat, they also are making sure the rest of the team stays eligible through grade checks, which makes Bahr’s job a little easier.
“They are getting on our younger guys to get their grades up,” Bahr said. “I don’t have to watch these kids like a hawk in the hallways because my seniors are doing it.”
The Eagles, who hope to fill close to a full lineup for the majority of the season, have about a half dozen new wrestlers this season.
