Ferari Competes in IHSA Wrestling State Finals

Xander Ferari takes 3rd place at the Byron Sectional for Class 1A wrestling

Lisle High School sophomore Xander Ferari headed to the Class 1A state wrestling final tournament at the State Farm Center in Champaign-Urbana on Thursday, February 15. 

Ferari had an accomplished season, finishing with a regular season record of 30-5. This led him to become an All-Conference wrestler and earn the title of Illinois Central 8 (IC8) Conference Champ in the 120-lb. weight class.

He advanced as the regional champ in post-season meets. At the Byron Sectional, Ferari placed third. As a result of these accomplishments, he entered the state tournament ranked 6th.

The Lisle drumline paraded through the halls with Head Coach Brandon Wolak and Ferari for a ONEPRIDE state send-off Thursday morning.

Ultimately, he finished this season with a record of 30-7, bringing his overall high school career record to 60-17. Wolak said to have a wrestler rack up 60 wins in the first two seasons is commendable.

Each year Ferari has breakthrough moments, as a freshman he was a sectional qualifier and this year he advanced to state. Undoubtedly, the Lions will lean on his experience and leadership next season.
