On January 20th, Seth Meyer did something he never thought he would have accomplished.
A state competitor for the past two years, the senior leader broke three records at Harrison high school.
Meyer broke the fastest pin record.
Pining his competitor in 5 seconds.
The record before was 6 seconds, held by Eric McDonald.
Along with that record, Meyer now holds most career pins at 75.
The last record Meyer beat is the most important to him.
He now has the most match wins out of any wrestler that walked the halls of Harrison.
The previous record was 149, held by Reese Overby in 2008-2011.
Meyer now has 150.
“It is a great feeling to now be a record holder,” Meyer said. “I am bringing this momentum into post season play and I hope to bring home some wins.”
Meyer is planning on wrestling at the next level and is waiting to hear offers from a few schools.
“I just want to thank my coaches and teammates. I couldn’t have done this without them.”
As a team, the wrestlers are looking to make a long run in the post season this year.
After winning regionals for the past two years, the Raiders are aiming to compete in the state competition.
Led by 11 seniors and a veteran coach, the wrestling team has a lot of experience on the mat.
With only two meets left in the season, the Raiders already have a team score of 32 wins.
Senior Max Haywood, 160 weight class, has had an outstanding season so far.
His current record is 31-8.
“I am hoping to make it to semi-state and state as an individual and as a team,” Haywood said.
As a senior, one of Haywood’s main focuses is to set a good example for the underclassmen.
“I am teaching them how to act on and off the mat,” Haywood said. “They will be the next faces of Harrison wrestling and I want them to represent well.”
Josh Wade, Erik Ruiz and Sidney Shoop are all freshman who have contributed their talent to the team this year.
“Our freshman class has some strong wrestlers and they have helped us out a lot in all the different weight classes,” senior Tyler Baute said.
The Raiders start their post season at Jefferson High School on January 31st.
The seniors are ready to dominate and finish the year off with some champions.
“It’s our last season and we are giving everything we have,” Baute said.
