She is one of our leaders because of her defense. She’s averaging close to five steals a game and that’s just because she is relentless on the defensive end.”

Coach’s Quote: “Luke had an outstanding tournament winning his second straight CVC title,” Independence coach Ken DeAngelis said. “Luke went 3-0 with three pins spending a total of three minutes and 31 seconds on the mat. He’s a great kid who continues to work hard. He’s a team leader on and off the mat and sets a great example for our younger guys to follow.”

Brandon ThomasName: Brandon Thomas

He’s an inspiration to the entire team.”

Henry WoofterName: Henry Woofter
School: Chagrin Falls
Grade: 12
Stats: Recorded three pins to win the 285-pound championship at the CVC Wrestling Tournament
Coach’s Quote: “Henry was completely dominant in a championship performance that will be hard to beat,” Chagrin Falls coach Peter Cimoroni said. “He pinned his way to the crown with three wins in less than four minutes combined. Henry’s leadership and quiet confidence has sent a message through his team and school on what can be accomplished with hard work, dedication and doing things right. He is on a good path and is showing the way to his entire team. We are fortunate to have such a fine young man as our team captain.”
