Finding a home on the mat

MONROE - When Monroe junior Nick Walker stepped on the mat for the first time to wrestle last year, he had football and track on his mind. Walker said he was encouraged to go out for wrestling by fellow football players Cory Kundert and Dillon Weckerly. The peer pressure has spurred Walker into an athletic arena where he has thrived. As a first-year varsity wrestler, Walker has compiled a 32-9 mark and has his sights set on qualifying for the Richland Center sectional.
