Sophomore wrestler tries for state

Sophomore Chase Myers has been dominant on the mat this season. He is walking in his older brother’s footsteps to be the next state champion. He explained how he thinks his wrestling season is going on so far.

“I feel as if my sophomore season is going pretty good as I’m meeting my goals I made in the beginning of the season,” Myers said. “Another thing is that it took me a couple days to get used to my brother not being there because he was a big part of the team last year.”

The season is shortly coming to an end. Districts are coming up on Saturday which will determine if you qualify for state. You have to be in the top four to qualify. Myers qualified last year as a freshman.  He is currently ranked number eight in his division. Myers shared how he is going to finish up the season the best that he can.

“The biggest thing for me to finish my season the best I can is to keep putting in the work in and out of the wrestling room,” Myers said. “ I also need to trust the process and my coaches.”

There have been many tournaments throughout the whole season, but Myers shared his favorite.

“My favorite moment of this season was probably when I won the Millard West tournament,” Myers said. “It gave me a feel of what it’s like to win a tournament.” 

Myers’ older brother Mikey became state champion his senior year. Myers expressed who is his mentor, and who he looks up to.

“The biggest person I look up to and is my mentor, is my brother Mikey Myers,” Myers said. “He was a big part of me getting better throughout the season.”
