Athlete of the Week

Caleb Birdwell

With the Eastern A Superdivisional a little over a week away, the Fergus wrestling team is looking toward the Divisional with great anticipation. The Golden Eagles have wrestled well though out the season due to the dedication of the individual athletes.
One of those athletes who is having a strong year for Fergus is junior Caleb Birdwell. At last weekend’s Rocky Mountain Classic Tournament, Birdwell finished third at the prestigious meet. Birdwell is wrestling at 132 and 138 pounds this year.
Birdwell was one of two Fergus wrestlers who won all of his matches at the Class A Duals held in Belgrade this weekend. He finished with a 6-0 record with four wins coming at 132 pounds and the other two wins at 138 pounds. Three of Birdwell’s matches came via pins, while the other three were by decisions.
Birdwell looks to win a divisional title at the Superdivisional on Saturday, Feb. 4 at Glendive. At last year’s Class A State Meet, Birdwell finished second at 120 pounds. This year he has his sights set at winning a state championship.
