Wrestling and Basketball
Samantha Spielbauer plays varsity basketball, while also competing as a wrestler at Clayton Ridge High School in Guttenberg, Iowa. Even though this is her first year of wrestling, Spielbauer surprised everyone by winning her first-ever state wrestling championship during the third annual Iowa Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association’s girls state tournament. She had the fastest pin, in 1:16 to win at 160. Spielbauer will continue her season wrestling in the 2021 High School National Recruiting Showcase and Girls Folkstyle Nationals Tournament on March 27th and 28th. Oh, and did we mention that she plays basketball in the SAME SEASON as wrestling? And she also plays volleyball and soccer! We are honored to have her as our February Athlete of the Month. Congratulations!
