High Five-undefeated on the mat so far
Washington High School junior wrestler Isaac Campbell is 15-0 in the 126-pound weight class as the season nears the end. He also competed in the state cross-county meet for the Pam Pack.
- When did you start wrestling?

- If you could time travel, would you go forward or back and why?
Isaac: I would go forward to see what I will be doing a few years down the road. I have no idea right now what that would be.
