Athlete of the Week: Austin Neal

This weeks Athlete of the Week is Austin Neal (10), of the varsity wrestling team. Neal is undefeated in his first 8 matches.

The varsity wrestling team has gotten off to a semi-slow start with an overall team record of 3-4, but Neal’s performance has stood out.

“He does a good job of leading by example on the mats” head coach Brett Lieberoff said.

Neal’s biggest win this year came against CBC. He was up against a returning state tournament medalist. The 126 pound sophomore was able to pull out a victory.

“There’s a few things I still need to work on,” Neal said, “but I feel I am doing well so far.”

The Tigers will be busy over the winter break with three tournaments, two duals, and a meet against rival Vianney. Neal will look to help the team, and continue his success on his road to the state tournament.
