The Schuyler wrestling team began 2020 in great style with its 57-12 dual win over Columbus Scotus.
There were many outstanding performances displayed by the SCHS grapplers, including Ivan Perez’s pin over the Shamrocks Tyler Cline in a quick 75 seconds. With the victory, Perez improved to 15-3 on the season.
Congratulations on an impressive match and a fine season to date.
GIRLS BASKETBALL – The 2019-2020 SCHS girls basketball season has been a learning experience for many of the Lady Warrior athletes. One of the young ladies who has been showing steady improvement throughout the season has been Crystal Carrillo.
She had the best game of her career against Boys Town, scored 14 points and playing a tough game on the boards. Keep up the great work, Crystal.
BOYS BASKETBALL – We have been hearing about the outstanding offensive play of juniors Aaron Langemeier and Easton Hall this season but there is another Warrior who has been looking better and better with each passing game.
Not only did junior Oscar Velez score 10 points against the Mount Benedictine Knights, he was a force on the boards, hauling in several key rebounds and holding the Knight’s inside game at bay.
Velez was forced to the bench for much of the first half in foul trouble but when he came back in the second half, he put on quite a show. Had he played the whole game the outcome could have been much different. Awesome job, Oscar.

The OUTSTANDING WARRIOR recognition of the week goes to Crystal Carrillo. Her improvement on the hardwood has been inspirational. Hopefully, we will continue to see a steady improvement in her play all the way to districts.
Congratulations to all of the SCHS athletes on a good week. We are proud of all of you. Keep up the good work!
HEADING TOWARDS A SUPER SUPER BOWL: This past weekend had a little bit of everything in the NFL playoffs. There was the upset of the top seeded Baltimore Ravens in the AFC and then the most improbable comeback by the Kansas City Chiefs in their 51-31 victory over the Houston Texans.
In NFC, the 49ers looked very strong in their dismantling of the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers proved to the football world that there 13-3 record was not a fluke as they edged by the Seattle Seahawks 28-23 on the frozen tundra at Lambeau Field.
The two games this weekend should be very exciting and interesting. The Chiefs should pull off the win, but the Titans might be the hottest team right now. Because the game is at Arrowhead, I look for Kansas City to win a 38-34 thriller.
In the NFC, the 49ers squashed Green Bay a few weeks ago and they do have the homefield advantage as the number one seed. Green Bay will put on a better showing this time around but look for San Francisco to pull off a 27-21 win.
