Ken Wunderley profiles South Park wrestler Jake Wentzel. Read his story below.
Jake Wentzel has made trips to Virginia Beach and Kissammee, Fla., in the past two months, but neither was for a family vacation — he was participating in two national dual wrestling tournaments.
Wentzel, who recently completed his sophomore year at South Park High School, wrestled for Team Griffin's "B" squad at the National High School Coaches Association Duals, which took place May 23-26 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.
Although a "business trip," Wentzel enjoyed the experience: "We had a hotel right on the beach and we had great weather."
He posted a 6-2 record for the tournament.
