Eagle High Wrestling Starts to Wrap Up Season

The 2024 Eagle High wrestling team has been a force to be reckoned with. Athletes make breaking records and bring their best to every moment they are on the mat. With many multi-sport athletes and overachieving academics, the line up is nothing short of impressive.

So far, the team has had eight tournaments (both girls and boys teams competed at some tournaments) and have brought home medals and wins in all of them. Some athletes broke records and had personal bests showing their growth and dedication to the sport.

Senior Holland Wieber recently broke a record for Eagle High, making her the first female wrestler to take home 100 wins during her high school career.

“It’s been really exciting to watch the sport grow,” said Weiber. “Yet the milestone of 100 wins really makes it a more personal battle.”

This year’s seniors have made an impact, and all their favorite memories vary from wins to just bonding with the team.

“My favorite memory was winning the duel against Meridian,” said senior Wylie Stone. “My brother and I both won and everyone else lost that one, so it’s a core memory of the sport for me.”

Wrestling is known to be an individual sport, yet what brings these athletes together is the coaching they get. Head coach Mike Stone is known for bringing everyone he coaches together, something all the Eagle High Wrestling athletes agree on.

“He really brings everyone together, no matter what is going on,” said Wieber.

Being around the team one can tell the level of dedication and enjoyment they put out, and how they push themselves and others to do their best.

The season is coming to an end, with their recent success at the district championship with many state qualifiers. The girls team won the DIII Championship and had seven girls place individually, and senior Jordynn LeBeau was the District Champion in her weight class.

While the boys team had 12 boys place and sophomore Dylan Frothinger was district champion for his weight class.

The team has really been putting in their best effort this season, from the seniors that are leaving, to the memories they have made. Something that takes on individual competition can become a team effort dependening on the people around them and the mindset they take on.
