Get ready to rumble

We've already seen the season for preps hockey and basketball start in the past weeks, and now another major sport will get underway on Wednesday.
It'll be the first day of contests for wrestling teams around the state, and Kosmo is actually happy to see the grapplers are back, particularly after how exciting of a finish it was to last year's season.
In case you forget, one of the most exciting prep events within the county in quite some time took place last February when Oxford beat Novi Detroit Catholic Central by one point in the Division 1 state final in a championship that came down to the final match.
There were then numerous individual champions the following week at The Palace of Auburn Hills at the individual state finals.
Yes, it seems like yesterday all that happened, but it actually was about 9 months ago. Time does fly, but Kosmo is happy to see area wrestlers back in action starting on Wednesday.
Kosmo's main man Marvin will come out with his season preview in Sunday's edition of the Oakland Press, so be sure to read that.
- Looks like the European basketball influence will be alive and well in the county this season with a couple of big men from Eastern Europe playing at two area schools this winter.
Walled Lake Western will have a 6-10 player from Serbia named Miroslav Jaksic, a junior who already is being recruited by Big 10 schools. Country Day also has a Division I college prospect in senior Robert Puleikis, a 6-9 big man from Lithuania.
Puleikis has already been offered a scholarship by Central Michigan.
Both players can score from inside and on the perimeter as is the case with many European big men. They should be fun to watch and a nightmare to guard for opponents.
