November 2022 Athlete of the Month

The Core Values of Conqueror Weightlifting are Effort, Attitude, Trust and Respect.

Effort: The primary determinant of success for our team is effort. It is one thing we all have complete control over and everyone, regardless of ability level, can devote their very best effort towards mastering any task or challenge set before them.
Attitude: Daily attitude is another area completely under each individual’s control and is a vital part of successful development. We expect our team members to be positive, teachable, and personally accountable for their success.
Trust: Honesty and integrity are critical in developing a strong coach-athlete relationship. We expect all members of this team to be individuals who can be counted on to honor their word, be trustworthy and make wise choices both inside and outside the gym.
Respect: We are unique individuals who bring different backgrounds and interests to the team. Regardless of personal differences, we will be a team who always treats each other with honor and respect.

Each month, we will recognize one of our athletes who excels in consistently demonstrating these Core Values. Our November 2022 Athlete of Month is Casey Olson.

Casey is a high school sophomore wrestler who attends Millard West High School and is a member of the Wrestling with Character program. Since beginning training with us on August 1st, he has attended every training session and is an outstanding representative of our 4 Core Values. Casey gives his very best effort every time he sets foot in the gym in addition to being extremely teachable and encouraging to his teammates. He is a young man of integrity who can be counted on to do a job well done. Casey’s goal for the upcoming wrestling season is to finish in the top 6 at the Nebraska State Championship tournament and he is well on his way to accomplishing this goal. Congratulations on being selected as the November Athlete of the Month!
