Featured Athlete: Drake Yost


What were your expectations for this past meet?

I had high expectations because I had worked hard in the offseason, but when I saw my bracket I was worried because three out of the four people that I had to face had beaten me last year.

How did you do in the meet?

I ended up beating everyone in my bracket and placed first.

What are your team expectations for the season?

I feel that our team will do well this year because we have a returning state placer, Grant Hollingsworth, who I hope will win state. We have a good wrestler in every weight class so I’m excited to see what we can do.

What do you expect for yourself this season?

I am hoping to do well this year. I’m wrestling 138 this Saturday at the varsity Manhatttan tournament, and hopefully i’ll do well. The tournament on Saturday will only be my second varsity experience so I’m excited to see if my hard work paid off.

How does it feel to be moved up to varsity?

It makes you feel accomplished, but you also have to work a lot harder to do well at that level.
