With only a limited amount of experience, Seneca Middle School eighth grader Haydn Whitfield has quickly proven himself to be quite a talented wrestler. He is now an accomplished one as well. Haydn recently competed in the Carolina Invitational Wrestling Tournament in Lexington, SC. He was even seeded in 1st place for his weight category. Given the prestige of this tournament, to even qualify to participate is quite an accomplishment. To do so as 1st seed is remarkable. Even though he didn’t end up winning the tournament, this experience along with his talent and work ethic should only foretell the success he is sure to have in the years to come.
