The Cardinal

Ben Cutrer is a senior wrestler at Canfield High School anticipating a great senior campaign and season this winter along with his teammates.  

Ben has been part of the Canfield varsity wrestling team for all four years in high school.   He had been wrestling on the junior varsity and varsity level during his freshman and sophomore years, earning a Varsity letter for his efforts he put in his freshman year.

He had been on and off the varsity team throughout his high school tenure, but he had a phenomenal junior year and incredibly stood out amongst other wrestlers in the Mahoning Valley.

Due to being on Junior Varsity as a underclassman, Ben pushed himself past his limits mentally and physically to make sure that not only would he be on Varsity but one of the best wrestlers in his weight class of 170.    

Ben accomplished his goals and had a astonishing junior year at the varsity level.  He held a record of 34-11. Ben was District Placer which means he was only one match away from making it to the State Finals for wrestling.  Ben lost in the District Semifinals and had a rough semifinals down slide.

Just because Ben lost didn't mean he was ready to give up.  This off-season Ben has been attending open wrestling matches to practice for his upcoming season and continuously get better at the sport he loves.     

Despite the painful loss his junior year, Ben has been continuing to put in the hard work for his senior campaign and looks to win districts this upcoming wrestling season along with contributing strongly to his team.
