Athlete Profile: Nick Lopez

Kayla Restivo, Staff Writer

Height: 6’2

Sport: Varsity Wrestling

Weight Class: Heavyweight (285 pounds)

College Interest: “I don’t plan on wrestling in college, but hopefully go to Florida State academically.”

Best accomplishment: “My best accomplishment was making the wrestling team because the wrestling team were district champions last year so I figured it was going to be difficult.”

“I have only been doing wrestling this year. I started wrestling because my brother and a couple of friends convinced me to join and my body is the right size for the sport. My favorite memory so far was this season when I watching Park Vista’s heavy weight wrestler getting slammed by Wellington’s wrestler. I did not wrestle as much as I wanted to this year, but during the off season I am only going to train to get better. I hope to wrestle for the Chiefs again next season.”
