All the way from Myers Elementary, Carter Hardy is this week’s Athlete of the Week.

A kindergarten student in Mrs. Winesickle’s class, Carter has only been wrestling for one year and he is already leaving his all on the mat. 

This 5-year old practices two to three days a week with the Bellwood elementary wrestling team and on a separate two days he practices with his Young Guns team in Altoona. 

On the weekends, Carter competes in tournaments and duals. Just this past weekend he brought home his 100th win! Recently Carter also won his team’s Hard Hat Award, given to a wrestler who is giving it his all. It’s quite fitting since he is working to be a state champion one day.

Congratulations Carter on all your hard work and good luck! Bellwood can’t wait to see you on the varsity team!
