WAYNESVILLE – A seventh Waynesville High student-athlete recently signed a letter of intent to participate in collegiate athletics.
On April 26, Waynesville senior Andrew Wallace committed to wrestle at Missouri Baptist University, located in St. Louis.
"It's very exciting," Wallace said about taking his skill set to the next level. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance that keeps my dream of being a great wrestler alive."
Wallace helped his Tigers win a fifth-straight Ozark Conference championship before earning a spot among eight school wrestlers to qualify for the state tournament in February.
Now Wallace must look to the future, something the Tiger will eventually embrace.
"It's hard to think that all these years are almost done," he said.
Other athletes who have committed to collegiate athletics include: Kaitlyn Winking, Rhiannon Moore, Tim Moore, E.J. Green, Lajos Zadravecz and Josh Rocker. Other senior student-athletes, including Dylan Newcomb, Ethan Howser and Magi House have yet to sign with a university.
Waynesville wrestlers finished sixth overall at the state tournament.
