Local Wrestlers Earn Athletes Of The Week Honors
The Tyler Star News Athletes of the week for April 14, 2021 are four wrestlers from Tyler Consolidated High School, and two Wrestlers from Paden City High School.
On Saturday April 10, at the regional wrestling tournament in Fairmont, TCHS had four wrestlers fight their way through the tournament and advance to the state meet to be held in Huntington, next week.
The Silver Knights had Trenton Huffman finish second in his weight class to move on.
Sean Winfrey also finished with a second place, while Danny McCune and Kaden Huffman each earned a trip to the event.
From Paden City, Jasup Spragg became the first wrestler in Paden City history to ever advance to the state tournament. A
little while later teammate Doneven Clarke also qualified to become the second ever from the school to reach the final event of the year.
All six of these wrestlers have battled tough opposition during the season, but on Friday and Saturday, April 9 and 10, at the regional event, they went above and beyond to represent the two local high school at a level in some cases never seen before.
At the Tyler Star News we wish each one the best of luck as they continue their quest to the top of the podium.
