Southern Door's Grant Englebert has not run away from a challenge this season, but rather has embraced them at every turn.
Englebert started his senior campaign nursing a shoulder injury, but a brace has allowed him to continue to compete at a high level without having to change his style. A state place winner last year, Englebert has followed it up by placing at every tournament this season including first place at Hustisford on Saturday. Competing at a high level means facing the best of the best all season long, like a close loss to defending state champion and nationally ranked Matty Bianchi of Two Rivers. Englebert says he would rather face the top-flight competition rather than cruise through the season unchallenged.
Englebert says he is undecided about what his next steps will be after high school, but added his current favorite subject is biology. The Culver's Student-Athlete of the Week will have two weeks off before his next action, the WIAA Regional Tournament at Brillion featuring Brillion, Mishicot, Oneida Nation, and Reedsville.
