BLOOMSDAY SECOND SEEDING

Lake City High School

W

ith hard work and determination, you can achieve anything. That is something that Lake City High School senior Devin Sorrelle said he has learned by being involved in wrestling. He is in his second year as captain of the LCHS wrestling team and was a 2018 qualifier for state as well as a 2019 Pacific Northwest Classic runner-up, and he placed in the 2019 Jug Beck Rocky Mountain Classic. Devin shares that his biggest challenge when it comes to wrestling was gaining confidence. “Last season I didn’t win some matches because I had a mental block; I just wasn’t confident enough in myself and had a constant fear of losing,” he said. “But as the season went on, with a lot of help from my dad, my teammates and pep talks from my coaches, I got a lot more comfortable. I no longer get nervous before matches because I know that I’ve done the preparation and that

In his words....

I’m ready for whatever happens next.” Devin plans to attend University of Idaho in the fall unless there is an opportunity to wrestle for a college team at another school. “After college I would like to be an architect. My dad is a general contractor, and I have grown up around construction sites and constantly fixing up houses. I really enjoy working with my dad and learning from him,” said Devin. Devin said he enjoys wrestling because it is a sport that anyone can do—no matter how tall, short or big you are. “What sets people apart is hard work and determination. I also love the rush that you get before a match. It’s exciting. In addition to that, I love competing and traveling with my team. They have become family to me,” he said. Going forward, Devin will take the things he has learned from wrestling and apply them to his everyday life: “You should always set high goals for yourself, live a healthy lifestyle and surround yourself with positive people.”
