Current Roster at 34.
Lost three kids from last years team. One was a senior. Another injured himself and then after playing football this year decided basketball was the route he was going to take, pretty good wrestler also could of made a run in the tourney. The final decided he was going to focus on running sports
Finished the season last year with 20 on roster so we have alot of new faces, including some new football players with no wrestling experience giving it a whirl. It ebbs and flows from year to year. I have had classes were kids no matter what you did just weren't involved in sports. Last couple of classes have had lots of competitive kids and we have seen our numbers rise. Madison hovers around low 800's in enrollment. So 30+ kids for us is a good turnout. When I was in school here back in the 90's and our enrollment was over 1000 we still only had 20-30 kids in the program. Goal is to try to reach that 40 kid mark this season.
It also helps when the coaches son is starting his freshman year and he can talk his football teammates into coming out.
