Matt Zuber '20 is a three-time regional champ, 3x sectional qualifier and a back-to-back state qualifier.
Congratulations to Friars' wrestler Matt Zuber '20 (St. Cletus, La Grange), who finished second in the Chicago Catholic League conference tournament in the 160-lb. weight class -- after fighting through a knee injury earlier in his senior season. "Zuber is such a hard-working kid," praises Head Coach Seth Gamino '01. "He placed 7th at the Dvorak tournament, which is the hardest tournament in the state. His record has been 11-3 [since returning to action], and he has gone undefeated in all our dual meets."
Zuber also is a three-time regional champion, Gamino points out, a three-time sectional qualifier, and a back-to-back state qualifier. "He's looking for his 3rd and bringing home some hardware for the Friars!" says his hopeful coach. Zuber is team captain for the second consecutive year. Matt, who also ran cross country and has played baseball for Fenwick, is headed to the grappling mat at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb next school year!
