Week 9 Athlete of the Week: Aiden Barker


Here is the Louisburg Sports Zone Athlete of the Week for week nine of the winter sports season, sponsored by IronHorse Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Aiden Barker, Junior, Wrestling

Louisburg junior Aiden Barker had a career day Friday for the Wildcat wrestling program. Barker, who wrestles at 182 pounds, won the Class 4A regional title with a 3-0 record and earned a spot in the final 16 for the first time. He recorded two pins and then defeated Topeka-Hayden’s Will Devader by a 14-8 decision in the championship match.

Barker seems to be wrestling his best at the right time as he has posted a 25-8 record on the season to go along with 18 pins. Barker and the five other Louisburg sub-state qualifiers helped the Wildcats to a fourth place finish in the team standings at the Jefferson West regional.
