Kennard-Dale senior Chance Marsteller, who recently completed a perfect high-school wrestling career with his fourth PIAA championship has been nominated for another award, this one that could help the school’s entire athletic department.
Marsteller has been nominated for a USA Today poll titled “The Inspiration” in which he could be recognized as the most inspirational scholastic athlete in the country for his unparalleled wrestling accomplishments. If he wins, the Kennard-Dale athletic department will also get a $1000 donation.
The poll can be found here.
