Wyoming Area’s Andy Schutz has a lot riding on his shoulders after winning District 2 gold in his first season as a varsity wrestler. But the sophomore is ready to take on more and he proved that last week.
Schutz claimed silver in the 33rd annual Tunkhannock Kiwanis Tournament after losing a tough decision to Zach Green of Northeast Bradford in the championship bout.
For his effort, Andy has been named The Sunday Dispatch Wyoming Area Athlete of the Week for the week Dec. 27-Jan. 2.
Schutz, the Warriors 125-pounder, opened the tournament with a last second win against up-and-comer Austin Harry of Lake-Lehman in a 3-1 decision that he won on a takedown with 0.7 seconds left.
Posters of Andy can be seen at Januzzi’s Pizza in Wyoming and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Wyoming Area Athlete of the Week.
