This week’s High School Wrestler of the Week, Chase Saldate of Gilroy, California earns the honor after going undefeated for Team SCWAY at the NUWAY Summer High School Duals in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Saldate’s 8-0 record helped lead Team SCWAY to the finals of the dual tournament, before falling to Team Shutt. In his eight wins, Chase pinned five of his opponents, four of those falls came within the first minute of their match. The biggest win of the tournament came for Saldate in the finals when he picked up a win over two-time West Virginia state champion Peyton Hall, also a placewinner at NHSCA Sophomore Nationals, FloNationals, and the Walsh Ironman.
