Ross Arch • Freshman • Palmyra wrestling
Arch earned a 3-2 decision on Tuesday over Luke West of Hallsville, who had been the top-ranked Class 1 wrestler in the 145-pound weight class entering the match. As a result, the Palmyra freshman moved to No. 2 in the 138-pound state rankings. Arch remains undefeated on the season under coach Josh Buatte.
Lila Yager • Sophomore • Monroe City basketball
Yager is an example of the depth Monroe City coach Cody Leonard has at his disposal. The sophomore provided a career-high eight points during a win over Winfield on Monday and knocked down a pair of 3-pointers Wednesday to help the Lady Panthers advance to the Clopton Tournament championship.
