Ken Wunderley profiles South Park wrestler Jake Wentzel. Read his story below.
Jake Wentzel reached the pinnacle of PIAA wrestling in March when he joined with teammate Greg Bulsak to become the first South Park wrestlers to win a state title.
The obvious goal for both is to repeat as WPIAL and PIAA champions, but Wentzel wants to take it one step further.
"My goal for the upcoming season is to go undefeated," Wentzel said. "I came close last year."
Wentzel completed his junior year with a 40-1 record. His only loss came in the finals of the Powerade Christmas Tournament, when he dropped a 5-3 decision to Central Catholic's Vincenzo Joseph, a Penn State recruit who went on to win a second PIAA Class AAA title.
