The number 100 has forever been harrowed in the sports world. Whether it is an NFL running back reaching 100 touchdowns in a career, or it is Wilt Chamberlain holding up the paper with 100 on it, signifying his famous 100 point game.
High school wrestling is no different when it comes to the importance of the number. Especially at Red Lion wrestling, which has a rich wrestling history, with names like Lloyd and Nguyen littering the 100 wins banner.
“Wrestling at Red Lion, knowing the rich history of this sport here is absolutely mind blowing,” senior wrestler Dylan Gurreri said. “Knowing all the big name people that have come through this program and knowing what they have done really is what set my goals for myself.”

Swimming may seem like a quiet sport at first, since all of the athletes are holding their breath the entire time, but a Red Lion swimming meet is anything but silent.
Despite the hot and humid atmosphere, the bleachers are crammed with enthusiastic parents, siblings, and swimming alumni. In such an enclosed space, the roar of the crowd and athletes rivals that of a football stadium. Everything from the encouraging chants to the coach’s yellow and white Converse screams school spirit.
Athletes are always crowded on the side of the pool, ready to scream encouragement at their teammates. Their spirit percolates through everything, making the team more connected.
