One month into his first season as Hinsdale South wrestling coach, Steve Holland likes what he’s seen.
Holland took over after Mike Matozzi retired in the spring and has brought his own coaching style. Among his top returnees, senior Justin Maslow at 145 pounds and sophomore Josh King at 220 are returning state qualifiers and continue to be among the state’s best. Senior Nick Perisin (130), junior Nick Carlson (126) and senior Matt LeGare also have earned their share of medals this season.
King finished second Saturday at Palatine’s 59th annual Berman Holiday Classic, while Perisin and Carlson each placed eighth. The Hornets competed without Maslow, who had a family commitment.
The Hornets wrestlers say the transition has been easy.
