            Expectations for Upper Perkiomen's boys wrestling team have been heightened. Head coach Steve Adam is aiming for a home match in the District One Class 3A team duals.

Branden Rozanski and Zane Saeger compete dur-

ing practice ealier this week.

            "I'm real excited for this group," the coach said. "I believe there's a lot of success coming in our future. We're going to be prepared. We're going to be up for the challenge."

            For the first time during Adam's tenure, the Indians will not forfeit any matches. According to the coach, a talented freshman class will allow them to fill all 13 weight classes. "I think we're going to surprise a few teams," Adam said.

            With five returners who posted at least 25 victories last season – and three who reached 30, including Branden Rozanski, a two-time state qualifier – along with a rugged schedule, Adam has targeted a top eight seed in the district duals tourney.

            "Anything else would be a disappointment," he said.

            For Rozanski, the team's top performer, the only acceptable option to finish his high school career would be to reach the medal stand at the PIAA Championships. Rozanski, who should reach 100 career victories in mid-January, is more determined than ever to finish in the top eight.

            Rozanski (36-7), Gabriel Tulone (32-11), Ben Godshall (30-10) Brandon Godshall (27-12) and Gabe Sanfelice (25-16) – all of whom qualified for ...

            Upper Perkiomen's boys basketball team enters its new season with a degree of intrigue, according to head coach Michael DeCarolis. With four returning starters and an overhauled offense, he expressed hope that the program will take another step

Tuesday's scrimmage with Faith Christian Acad-



            The big picture goal is to qualify for the Pioneer Athletic Conference or District One playoffs, according to DeCarolis. He said the short-term objective is to get "one percent better each day."

            A quartet of seniors -- Braden Rieg, Owen Williams, Aidan Keyser and Evan Bosler -- each started last season for the Indians, who finished with three victories. Rieg and Keyser received significant playing time as ninth graders.

            "They all have a ton of experience," said the coach, whose team hosted Faith Christian Academy in a scrimmage on Tuesday.

            Isiah Brown, a 6'2 senior point guard, will join his classmates in the starting lineup. The second-year player -- who spent most of last season on the JV team -- is athletic and can score, according to DeCarolis.

            A trio of juniors -- Rob Rice, a 6'5 junior post player, Connor Gehman, Vin Galassi -- and freshman Darius Reed will likely be included in the rotation.

            Brown will orchestrate a motion offense. The coach made the shift from a dribble-drive approach to a system that relies on passing, cutting and screening to share the ball and ...
