The Bulldogs wrestling team has closed out the season strong as sophomore Matheson Mead finished third in the state.
After a season of rebuilding and team growth, the hard work has paid off for Mead as he represented his team at state.
“It meant a lot to me being able to represent the school the best way possible,” Mead said. “And to continue the past four years that we have had a state placer.”
Mead won six of seven matches at the state wrestling tournament, earning him third place along with All-State honors. The preparation for state was nothing out of the ordinary for Mead.
“It was normal training, just a lot more intense,” Mead said. “There is a lot of mental preparation.”
With this season behind him, Mead now looks ahead to his junior year and has high hopes for his success.
“This year I was one of two non-seniors to place, so I don’t see any reason I wouldn’t be able to win the next two,” Mead said. “I’m just ready to get back after it.”
