Kory Polley proves to be one of Christian County’s most valuable wrestlers. And after the state tournament finished, it appears he has a bright future over the next couple of seasons.
Sophomore wrestler Kory Polley had an excellent season in 2011. Polley showed this season that he’s one of the best in the state in his class. The 5-foot-8, 148-pounder has had a couple of milestones this season.
Polley placed sixth place in the state in his class after this weekend’s state tournament. He qualified for state by winning the regional championship.
“My standout moment this season was when I was the KHSAA Regional Champion,” said Polley. “It’s been the best season yet,” he said.
Polley also participates in football for Christian County and as a football player it’s obvious that he has to work hard. But conditioning on the gridiron is nothing like conditioning for the mat.
“Football shape is nothing compared to wrestling shape. The conditioning is way more intense than football,” said Polley.
As a wrestler, getting in shape takes a lot of effort and Polley is willing to put in the work to get better.
“My biggest strength is my technique and my speed,” he said. “I’m working to improve my strength the most, but I’m always up for any improvement. My expectations are to work hard and strive to be the best,” he finished.
