Trenton was nominated by Coach Cone. Trenton is one of the hardest working kids on the team. Trenton is 46-10 on the season, finished as district champ and place 2nd at regionals in the month of February. He has also has the 2nd most wins on the team. Trenton always finishes first in sprints and the runs and is always trying to get better during practice. As a sophomore, he is already one of the leaders on the team. He maintains above a 3.6 GPA and can always be counted on to help other kids on the team.
Trenton started wrestling when he was in 7th grade and fell in love with the sport. He finished 5th in the state this season. As a sophomore, Trenton is undecided on what he wants to pursue a degree in. He is a team player and loves helping others out. He also is part of the PIT Crew at Timber Creek.
A big shout out to Trenton for another outstanding season. His hard work certainly paid off and we look forward to his continued success as he finishes his final two years at Timber Creek.
