On March 3, the Meade County High School Wrestling coaches, boosters and school leadership honored their outgoing seniors that included their family members to a dinner prior to being recognized in front of their peers and wrestling fans before their match against Bardstown in the Freshman Academy.

The first senior to make their way to the mat was the team’s long-time Manager, Amber Burns, escorted by Daniel Burns and Krystal Wyatt. She plans on attending EKU where she will major in criminal justice. She has been managing the wrestling team for four years and did more pushups than ½ of the boys one day at practice. She has also managed to tolerate Coach Lattin for four consecutive years, while earning the nickname “Chunk” because she is always eating. Her fondest memory while with the team is when they sang Feliz Navidad in the wrestling room after a match, and nobody knew the words.

Next up was wrestler David Griffith, who was escorted by Diana Griffith. David plans to attend EKU after graduation to major in criminal justice while minoring in military science. While with the team, David won a regional championship and was accepted to a college. His fondest memory was playing in the lake at West Virginia, and leg cradling a guy during the regional championship.

The final senior was Caileb Hills, who was escorted by Dean and Jessica Hills. Caileb plans to attend the US Air Force Academy after graduation where he hopes to one day become a pilot. Caileb has placed at regionals every year he has been with the team while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. His fondest memory is when the entire team sang on the bus while heading back from State, and the year that Levi Stull began having ice in his veins.
