From the sidelines: FWHS senior Cheyenne Wakeham has grown into a true leader on the wrestling team. She has a calm demeanor about her that others on the team gravitate to. She regularly works with the younger athletes and is, at times, like an extension of the coaching staff as she helps show the younger wrestlers how to improve. This past weekend at the Mat Classic state meet, she placed fourth in her weight class.
