Foran High’s Lion Palooza included pre-match free pizza and soda for students, an outstanding rendition of the National Anthem by members of the school choir, Unified Sport athletes walking wrestlers out to the center mat during introductions, and concluded with a 57-21 victory over Shelton High in the Edna Fraser Gymnasium on Wednesday.
“It was nice to have the kids here,” Lion head coach Dave Esposito said of the full bleachers. “It is great for our wrestlers to have them here. Scheduling the game in the afternoon played to that. Our guys work very hard, have to watch what they eat, and can’t stay out. It was great to see the support.”
