Athlete of the Week: Ben Swarr

Garden Spot wrestler Ben Swarr is our Athlete of the Week!

Swarr pinned Central Dauphin's Hunter Nielson at the Hecker Duals over the weekend, breaking the Garden Spot record of 123 individual wins.

That record was held by two men: Jeff Witwer, who ended his time with the Spartans in 1989, and Nick Cook, who graduated last year.

After yet another pin against Elizabethtown Monday night, Swarr's win total stands at 127, with plenty of chances for more.

Garden Spot has clinched at least a share of the section 2 title, but wrestles CV later tonight. With a win, they will become the outright champion! A loss would cause another three-way tie between the Spartans, CV and Manheim Central.

Swarr will also have a chance to defend his first ever L-L league title this weekend at the L-L championships!

We wish him all the best!
