Leyhe wins Athlete of the Week

MAHOMET (WCIA) — Isabelle Leyhe is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The Mahomet-Seymour wrestler won the Mt. Zion regional, each match by pin. In her career, the four-year letter winner and two-time captain has won 59 career matches, with 34 coming by pin. Now she’s looking to win the sectional and advance to the state tournament later this month.

“I’m really excited, I’m confident that I’m gonna perform to the best of my abilities and the rest of the girls that are wrestling are gonna perform to the best of their abilities,” Leyhe said. “I’m really excited to see how well we can do and show everyone what we’ve been working towards.”

Leyhe is now eligible for a $1,000 scholarship we’ll give away to one boy and one girl at the end of the school year. If you know a deserving high school student who should be our next athlete of the week, we’d love to hear from you.
