Athlete of the Week
February 27 – March 4, 2012

Wrestling

Over the last week, Nikita has epitomized what a Hyde athlete should strive to be. While his successes on the matt had ended for the season at the Class A Tournament here at Hyde, he continued to be a team player and wild supporter of the community around him. His passion transferred to those still competing. Whether dressed as the “Hyde Wrestler” and leading basketball cheers at the Augusta Civic Center or rolling around with wrestlers still to compete Nikita’s unselfish attitude and passion have made him this week’s AOTW.
