Ranked # 1 in State
SCHUYLERVILLE — This week’s Athlete of the Week was nominated by wrestling head coach Erik Johanson. Junior Orion Anderson is currently a junior on the school’s wrestling team. As a mere freshman Anderson made quite the impression on the Mighty Horses, by finishing as a runner-up at the New York State competition. The very next year he was crowned the New York State champion. He is currently ranked as the top wrestler in New York State. This past summer he was named the Greco Roman New York State champion. A current member of New York State’s National Wrestling Team, Anderson was just one round away from being named an All-American at this past year’s National tournament. Through a total of three varsity seasons, he has accumulated an astounding career record of 108-6. Coach Johanson describes Anderson as “a great leader, and a role model on and off of the mat.” While being a spectacular athlete, Orion is a solid student in the classroom by maintaining a B grade point average. Anderson is yet another example of an exceptional student athlete. Congratulations on all of your success Orion. It’s very well deserved!
