Prep of the Week: Bo Zwiener
(ABC 6 News) — Following Bo Zwiener’s second State wrestling appearance in 2023, he’s using his 6th place finish as a stepping stone for 2024.
“I’m just trying to build on past seasons,” Zwiener said. “Each year you got to keep on building, don’t want to fall back at all.”
This season may be the biggest building year yet, Razorbacks head coach Shane Masching noting of Zwiener, “Throughout his career wrestling career, he has done nothing but the right things all the way through and that what’s turned him into who he is right now.”
Earlier this season, Zwiener would put his name in Razorbacks history entering the 100-win club.
“Nice to put myself in that category as a Westfield Razorback and be one of the few that are in it,” Zwiener continued.
Those wins started with hard work in the offseason and in practice to help his team.
“He will always wrestle with me no matter what,” teammate Kevin Hodge noted. “He always knows a good move to do and how to maybe get out of something. Just wrestle and compete.”
Beyond the milestone wins, Zwiener has a 30-6 overall record during his junior campaign with 21 pins to boot.
“Everything that he does, there is no corners cut,” Coach Masching emphasized. “It’s all the way through.”
It’s a work ethic that demonstrates how much Zwiener is a one of a one-of-a-kind wrestler and teammate.
“I just wish that there was more Bo’s like him, it’s great,” Hodge affirmed. “He will wrestle people heavier, people lower, he’s a great teammate.”
As a junior and a captain, no matter what the season’s final result is, Zwiener will keep building on it for next year.
