Walk to State: Wrestling

“It’s the cherry on top.”

Wrestling Assistant Coach Paul Marshall ‘86 excitedly shared that summary of the 2016-2017 CJ wrestling team experience after Micah Marshall ‘18 and Isaiah Wortham ‘20 participated in the traditional Walk to State on Thursday, March 9. Marshall qualified for the tournament in the 138 weight class and Wortham qualified for the tournament in the 120 weight class.

“It’s an experience I’ve been waiting for for the last three years,” Marshall said. “It’s amazing to know my work led up to this.”

“I’ve been wrestling for eight years,” Wortham reflected. “It’s pretty cool to represent CJ and do the best I can.”

Both Marshall and Wortham finished their seasons in the “Sweet 16” round.

“We plan to take more wrestlers to state next year,” Coach Marshall emphasized. “We have a great group of kids and everyone has been working hard.”
