Shining a Spotlight on Pioneer Student-Athletes

Luke H.

Class of 2022

Hometown: Studley, VA

Varsity Wrestler

Stats this season: 19-5 record this season. Recently Luke injured his ankle and we wish him the speediest of recoveries.

From Luke's coach: "Luke has consistently proven to be among our most disciplined, dedicated workers and established himself as an influential role model for those around him. He has competed impressively in numerous nationally recognized tournaments this year and is ranked among the top 12 wrestlers in his weight class in the current National Prep Rankings."

In Luke's words: "I got into wrestling when I was four years old—so I've been wrestling for 13 years. I feel like I've loved the sport my entire life! My older brother is a wrestler, too. I love that in wrestling it's just about me out there and I have the power to decide the outcome. Of course we get help from coaches and teammates, too, but ultimately what happens on the mat is decided by the individual who is out there. The most rewarding thing about wrestling is getting your hand raised and knowing that your hard work has paid off."
