Illness has limited his competition, but his perfect record is intact
Despite being undefeated, it hasn't been the easiest wrestling season for Indian Creek's Ethan Raley.
At a time when most wrestlers have from 15 to 20 matches under their belts, Raley has just eight. The reigning 103-pound state champ -- now 41-0 in his high school career -- missed two weekend tournaments with what he called the flu.
"It was real tough watching my teammates wrestle and not getting to," Raley said, "but it hasn't really affected me. I feel better now. I don't feel like I'm out of shape or behind anyone else or anything."
