(KNSI) - As mentioned before and as many know, wrestlers do not "play" their sport but that does not dissuade one local wrestler from being awarded this week's All-Star Trophy Player of the Week.
Sartell's 138-pounder Nick Pelach is currently 24-1 on the season en route to being named this week's Central Lakes Conference Performer of the Week for wrestling.
Last week, Pelach went 5-0 and recorded his 150th win; his career record is now 151-37.
Pelach's streak has earned him a ranking of third at 138-pounds in AAA according to The Guillotine.
Although Pelach's fluid movements on the mat speak for themselves as to how good he is, it's his work ethic that impresses head coach Cody Olson.
"Nick is an amazing kid and an extremely hard worker."
Pelach and Sartell have their work cutout for them as they travel to Willmar tonight to take on a Cardinal team that is currently ranked fifth in AAA.
The Cardinals and Sabres are both in Section 8AAA so this dual may be a preview of the Section Championship in a few weeks.
Congratulations, Nick and good luck to you and the Sartell Sabres Wrestling Team in the future and beyond!
