Among athletic achievements for youth athletes, those of wrestlers are among the greatest. Wrestlers must work hard on technique and strength, and to maintain their weight to fit into their team’s lineup. They are tasked to emerge victorious in a one-on-one battle with another wrestler who has been working on the same goal.
Three local wrestlers – Kaneland’s Dan Goress and Marmion’s Johnny Jimenez and George Fisher, both of whom are from St. Charles – won individual IHSA state championships last month. Marmion’s team then placed second in the IHSA Class 3A team competition.
Marmion took home a trophy from the dual team state finals for the first time. Jimenez won on the last day of the team competition. Fisher had a key win in the semifinals. Jimenez said it was a big step for the school.
