Prep Star of the Week: Eddie Klimara of Providence Catholic
To meet our Good Day Prep Star of the Week, we hit the mat at Providence Catholic in New Lenox, where senior star Eddie Klimara is one of the top wrestlers not just in the Chicago area, but in the entire country.
Klimara was named the national wrestler of the week by themat.com after he won the prestigious Al Dvorak Memorial Tournament at 126 pounds. Eddie was recently ranked among the top 10 wrestlers in the country at 126 pounds.
A three time state high school finalist who won state as a freshman at 103 pounds, Klimara has a career record of 142-5.
Next week he'll attempt to become just the 11th wrestler in nearly a half century to win a Chicago Catholic League title four straight years.
