Athlete of the Week, Maverick McEwen Butte High Wrestling

It’s no secret that Maverick is an absolute stud on the wrestling mat and a great young man who works his absolute tail off. He became a back-to-back State Champ this weekend in Billings. Maverick won the state title in Washington and returned to his hometown to don the purple and white his senior year.

Maverick has wrestled incredibly all year and won his 160-pound title by a final score of 5-4 against Dylan Block of Great Falls. Earning him this week’s Butte Sports Athlete of the Week honors.

Mav got a little redemption on the way to his title as he faced Timmy Rodriquez of Billings Senior in the semifinal match, Roderiquez defeated McEwen at the AA duals in January, he defeated Rodriquez 5-0 to move to the finals.

Great Job Maverick and all the Butte Wrestlers. Keep working hard and best of luck to all the seniors going forward.
