Poinciana is proud to say that they have many people going to districts this year. Marvin Trigueros and Quaylen Hill have made the ranking this year for wrestling.

“The higher you are in the ranking, automatically the harder every match will be,” said coach Tracey Brown.

Trigueros said rankings are secondary to just winning.

“I don’t care where I am ranked at,” Trigueros said. “Ranking is just a number.”

Trigueros started wrestling in the seventh grade. The reason he started wrestling is because he grew up in a bad area. Trigueros credits the people around him to encourage him on his current path.

“My parents and my coaches have helped me get to where I am at today,” he claims

Trigueros feels confident that he is going to win a couple matches at the meet because he has worked since he was 12 for that.

“It is all about the mindset that makes me a better wrestler. My coaches have a big part in helping me have a better mindset,” Trigueros said. “Wrestling is one of the best sports you can play. Wrestling strengthens you in many ways, shows you discipline, and helps build your character.”
