The Sequoit wrestling team has been rolling over the competition over this season, even keeping up with state powerhouses like Marian Central.

Junior Niall Schoenfelder is a standout wrestler for the team this year. It’s no surprise considering wrestling runs in his veins. His older brother, Patrick Schoenfelder, has previously won a state title for the Sequoits.

N. Schoenfelder is a serious competitor for state along with many of his teammates and plans on letting nothing get between him and bringing another state title home to the Schoenfelder household.

Question: How satisfied are you with the season so far?

Answer: I feel that there were some matches I could have won but didn’t go my way, but other than that I feel pretty good of what I’ve done so far.

Q: How much faith do you have in your coaches and the process they put you through?

A: My coaches were all successful athletes that learned from their coaches and have made up workouts of their own to help us be able to peak at the right time.

A: I feel that we have some of the best captains in the state and every day they’ve been pushing us so we can achieve our goals.

Q: Who on the team has the best mentality?

A: I feel that Joey Pyles works his tail off every day. He comes in every day and it doesn’t matter what he feels like he still pushes himself.

Q: Do you feel any pressure from your older brother to be better?

A: When I first got to high school that was the case, but after talking with Pat this summer I realized that I didn’t have to achieve exactly what Pat did, all I had to do was accept what I have done and work harder to improve.

Q: How much faith do you have in your coaches and the process they put you through?
