The 2019-2020 Mustangs look to rebound from an injury plagued 2018-2019 season with a great group of kids who worked very hard in the off-season. 

 

Ten Mustangs come into this season with substantial varsity experience, including three who competed in Fargo this past summer. A solid senior class is led by Brendan Richardson who was a sectional and Fargo qualifier this past year as well as seniors Nick Callaghan, Griffin Casella, Joe Straus, Alex Liaromatis, and Cole Ganter who will all look to have strong senior campaigns. The junior class is led by Robert Major, who has 82 wins through his first two high school seasons and only IL losses were to the #1, 2, 3 kids in the state.  Robert was a Fargo All-American and is poised to have a breakout season in IL. Juniors Joe Davison and Anthony Sanchez also bring varsity experience to the line-up this year. Sophomores Jimmy Nugent (30 wins, Sectional/Fargo qualifier) and Will Schuessler will compete at a high level for the Mustangs. The Mustangs also bring in a strong freshmen class, including IESA State runner-up Luke Swan and three other IESA State Placewinners, which will provide some much needed depth for the Mustangs. 

 

The DGS Girls program is led by Senior Cristal Contreras who was a Freestyle State Placewinner/Fargo qualifier and junior Sharon Leon who qualified for Fargo as well.  Sophomore twins Gabija Lukosiute (4th at IWCOA Girls State) and Orinta Lukosiute return along with junior Sierra Lawson and senior Stormi Harrison.  Three other freshmen girls join the Girls Team as the Mustangs are ready for IL to be the next state to make Girls Wrestling an IHSA sport.  

 

The Mustangs have an outstanding staff of assistant coaches led by Sean Raddatz, Tim Noverini, Greg Maloney, Christos Giatras, Vince Liebich, Dave Lee, Josh Edwards, Jerry Gates, and Sam Scrivani.  Head Coach Sean Lovelace is in his 6th year of leading the Mustang program.  “We have a great group of kids who work hard on and off the mat, combined with an amazing staff of assistant coaches, and I think the results will showcase their efforts throughout the season,” said Lovelace.
