The Girls and Boys JV wrestling team both participated in a scramble between Robinson, Alonso, Spoto, Sickles, Steinbrenner, Plant and Gaither at Robinson which took place on Tuesday, Jan. 16. It led through the evening, and late into the night as wrestlers from all over Hillsborough fought for wins.

The meet served as a quintessential landscape of the present season, constituting both wins and losses for the Robinson Knights, yet they still pulled out an overall victory. 

Succeeding in her individual scramble, Yanichel Or (’25) won Thursday’s match against an Alonso Student.  Previously suffering from a minor concussion in the early season Or has made their mark on the wrestling scene the last few meets.

“I was out at the beginning of the season because I had a concussion. Since I got back, [I’ve had] two, three matches. It’s been a progression, getting back in here.” Or said.

Having been on the wrestling team since freshman year, he remarks on the original struggle that the sport was.

“I definitely struggled a lot more during freshman and sophomore year,” Or said. “When I started, I realized I was really insecure, wrestling-wise. I also realized I was lazy. But the more time moved on, I learned to be more motivated. I feel like wrestling has taught me new ways of thinking, this new mindset. I learned that your mindset determines everything. You can’t win without preparing—You have to develop this mindset.”

About the Contributor
Jordan De La Cruz, Staff Writer
Jordan De La Cruz is a junior at Robinson and a staff writer for Knight Writers. This is his first year on the staff. A true artist, De La Cruz partakes in many artistic hobbies including playing drums, guitar and even painting. "Anything creative I love to take part in," De La Cruz said. With an affinity for editing videos and having already written a few full-length stories, De La Cruz's passions for newspaper extend beyond the class. He felt joining newspaper would benefit his interests and wanted to expand his already formidable writing abilities. "As a writer I felt like this would be a super fun way to expand my influences with writing but also with the video editing," De La Cruz said. "I already have a good past in video editing that I think doing more of it would be great." While De La Cruz enjoys the opportunity to express his writing abilities, video creation is another thing that drew De La Cruz to newspaper. He looks forward to making content for the ongoing "Man on the street" videos under the Knight Mic series. De La Cruz looks forward to being able to build on the foundation left by previous classes and hopes to expand the coverage of Knight Mic videos beyond pep rallies and RHS sporting events. "I'm excited to be a host, be able to put my charisma on the screen," De La Cruz said. "Just being able to make videos with two friends of mine, I'm really excited." Never staying in one school for long, De La Cruz looks forward to finishing his final years at Robinson and leaving his mark on the school as a Knight Writer. "I used to move every year, but this is the only time I'm going to be able to finish the next three years at the same high school," De La Cruz said. "I'm super hopeful ... [that] I'll be able to have some sort of mark on the school." (Profile by Yesenia Rosario)
