Player of the Week, Mar. 10: Dalton Michael

Times West Virginian

FAIRMONT — East Fairmont’s Dalton Michael has set his sights on becoming the first wrestler to ever win three state championships at East Fairmont.

The sophomore grappler got the first one out of the way last week as he won the state championship at the 138-pound weight class.

At the state tournament, Michael seemingly breezed through all his matches. In the 138-pound final, Michael defeated cross-county rival Austin Stanley, 11-0, for the championship.

For his strong week, Michael was voted this week’s I-79 Joe Romeo’s Times West Virginian high school player of the week and will receive a coupon for a free appetizer from Applebee’s of Fairmont.
