Wendy’s High School Athletes of the Week – March 1, 2023

WIBW and Wendy’s are proud to celebrate the achievements of local high school athletes with our weekly Athletes of the Week honors.

Every week, we talk with standout high school athletes in Topeka who have made their names known through their contributions on the field, the court or wherever they compete. 580 WIBW and 580 Sports Talk thank Wendy’s for their continued support of high school athletes in Topeka.

This week’s athletes of the week are the Washburn Rural girls wrestling team, which won the 6A-5A state championship this past weekend, the program’s third title in the last four years. To discuss the championship run and this season, we spoke with Junior Blues head coach Damon Parker. Damon talked to us about the moment when Washburn Rural clinched the title, what made this specific team special and much more.
