Q & A with Morris athlete Nik Countryman
Last year, as a junior, Morris wrestler Nik Countryman finished in sixth place at the IHSA individual state tournament. While that's quite an accomplishment, the fact that he didn't get his medal on the podium down at the Assembly Hall in Champaign stills burns motivation into him.
Countryman is coming off a broken thumb he sustained playing linebacker for the Redskins football team, and though he is currently ranked fourth in the state by Illinois Matmen in the 182-pound weight class, a Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference East rival is currently third. That particular opponent is going to be at the same regional and sectional, and probably state, with Countryman, as well.
As if anyone needed more motivation to finish up his senior season of wrestling in a strong fashion. After winding up his workouts with the team in the wrestling room on Thursday, the captain of the football and wrestling teams engaged the MDH for this week's Q&A session.
