Toyota High School Athletes of the Week- West Genesee Wrestling

West Genesee Wrestling clinched the inaugural SCAC Metro League Championship (Niko Tamurian)

Every team has a story, some more remarkable or impressive than others.

For West Genesee, it's been the long game to improve into a New York State power.

The Wildcats won the SCAC Metro League Championship Monday by defeating Syracuse. Over the weekend they had a strong showing at a cross-match.

For their efforts, West Genesee is ranked #20 in all of the Empire State.

But it wasn't always this way.

Senior Victor Elias remembers a time when he was a freshman, and the season didn't go anything how the winter of 2018 is going.

Fast forward a few years, and nobody wants to run into the Wildcats.

West Genesee is 7-1 overall and clinched that league title with a 4-0 mark in Metro play.

The only loss? To perennial power and undefeated CBA/J-D. The other matches? Not even close.
