During Leroy and Dartanyon’s senior year, the Lincoln-West High School wrestling team had 7 wrestlers. And 5 pairs of wrestling shoes. The athletes rotated the shoes in between matches. If they were a little too big or a little too small, they had to do their best with what was available. One Carry On viewer caught wind of the situation and generously donated 9 pairs of new wrestling shoes to Lincoln-West last season. Eleven kids competed on the team this year, and their new shoes propelled them to a fourth place finish in the city tournament – their highest place in the school’s history. Congratulations Wolverines!
