Danishek Advances to State
Senior Henry Danishek (145) finished third in district competition this past weekend and advances to the OHSAA Division III Individual State Wrestling Championship in Columbus.
Despite over a decade of experience on the mat, Danishek has overcome a number of obstacles to arrive at this pinnacle of his wrestling career thus far. Last year, Dayton Christian did not have a coach, so the program was put on hiatus and Danishek took the year off. And just a few short weeks ago, the five-man team lost one of its members, Tommy Williamitis, to a fatal car accident.
It has been a rocky road, but this wrestler is relaxed and thrilled to be state-bound.
“I think things are really clicking for me because I’m having fun,” said Danishek. “There isn’t as much pressure this year. I feel really good.”
Tournament action will begin Thursday at 3:00 pm. Let’s be in prayer for our Warrior wrestler!
