|"It has been a dream," the goal of Calhoun wrestler Chris Morris. "I've been wrestling
since kindergarten," he said, as his picture was hung Friday on the Wall of Fame at
Calhoun Middle/High School. Morris is the West Virginia 119 pound champion wrestler,
joining the ranks of other CHS wrestlers who have reached the top. Morris was a
runner-up last year.|
Morris' is West Virginia wrestling champ
School administrator Roger Propst said Calhoun High has excelled in wrestling for
several years with a long list of accomplishments. "Chris Morris will be back next
year. He could be a two-timer on this wall," he said. He is the first honoree since the
program was moved to the new school. "It is not an easy thing to get here," said
Wrestling coach Mike Stump honors his wrestler
Calhoun wrestling coach Mike Stump helped the high school junior hang the award in
a brief ceremony Friday morning. "It has been great to watch this guy move ahead,"
said Stump, who was obviously proud of Morris' accomplishments.
