Varsity Athlete of the Week
The Varsity Athlete of the Week for February 26, 2018 is Zac Russell '19, a junior on the state champion wrestling team. A state runner up in 2017, Zac faced some bumps in the road though the middle of this season. He continued to believe in himself and faced these challenges head on.
Last weekend at the MSHSAA State Wrestling Championships under the bright lights of Mizzou Arena, Zac was clutch by winning in overtime in both the semifinal and championship bouts to become Whitfield 41st individual wrestling state champion.
