Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

This week’s athlete of the week has helped his team earn it’s second straight team state wrestling tournament berth.

Sam Mitchell, a senior at Marshfield High School, boasts a 39-1 record on the year, including a pin in just 35 seconds at the team’s sectional meet Wednesday against River Falls.

Mitchell has been to both state tournaments before, but hopes to have much more success this year.

He also says as fun as it is to earn a berth to the individual state meet, going as a team will be even better.

“It means everything. It’s such a great experience. Being down in Division 1 individual state is fun, it really is. But being down there with your family, with your team, it’s just a great, great overall experience,” Mitchell said.

The Marshfield Tigers will compete in their second straight team state meet on March 1st in Madison.
