Hidlay Wins Record Third Tate Award

| May 13, 2015 | 0 Comments

Hayden Hidlay keeps setting records and making history and Tuesday night was no exception.

Hidlay was honored with the Rod Tate Award, which is presented annually to the high school’s best wrestler.

He is the first three-time winner of the award, first presented in 1979. Noah Stewart finished second in the voting, followed by Trey Hartsock.

Hidlay finished his junior season with a 43-2 record and a third-place finish at 145 pounds. Hidlay is currently ranked the 11th best senior in the class of 2015-16 by Flo Wrestling.

“It’s pretty cool to win it again. With the amount of talent we have on this team it’s an honor to win this award,” Hidlay said. “You have guys who are very capable of winning it the last couple years. Hopefully, we will get a tie next year if we all win states. That’s what we’re all hoping for. A lot of the wrestlers on the list (Tate Award winners) may not have won three but they did win state titles and that’s what I’m looking for.”

Hidlay owns a 109-14 career record with three District 6 championships, two Northwest Regional crowns and a third and sixth place medal at the PIAA championships. He also has numerous medals and trophies competing in Freestyle and Greco-Roman during the spring and summer.

“The thing I improved on the most this season was my maturity. I was physically more mature and mentally I was more stable on the mat,” Hidlay said. “I had a game plan going in and even when bad stuff happened during a match I always bounced back. That’s where I grew as a wrestler this year.”

Stewart finished fourth in the PIAA championships with a 41-7 record at 160 pounds, while Hartsock was 37-8 on the season, finishing seventh at 195.

The Tate Award is presented annually by MERF Radio to Mifflin County’s top wrestler. Nominees are voted on by local media, including The Sentinel, and representatives of the Mifflin County High School’s athletic department. Each voter chose three candidates, with points awarded to first, second and third-place vote recipients and the award going to the player with the highest vote total.

The 2015 Husky Awards were presented by the Husky Club and on the wrestling side Isaac Underhill won the Senior Athlete and Scholar Athlete awards, Hayden won the Husky Athlete award, Noah Stewart took home the Husky Hustle award and Trey Hartsock captured the Husky Pride award.
