Festus Tigers wrestler Luke Shaver is the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.
Shaver continued an unbeaten senior season by winning the Class 3 District 1 championship at 182 pounds.
Shaver had to knock off Farmington’s Judd Cunningham in the title bout, as he tangled with a fellow 2020 state medalist.
Tigers head coach Jason Nahlik says that type of competition makes Shaver aware that his success is not a guarantee.
Shaver improved to 40-0, but he had an unbeaten record last year when he reached the state tournament before finishing third.
As Athlete of the Week, Shaver receives a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon for a free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
