Depies named Athlete of the Week
MHS sophomore, Ryder Depies, in his second year on the Bluejays varsity wrestling team, enjoyed a solid start to his 2021 wrestling season when he picked up a win over his opponent at the 182-pound weight class against Wausau West on Dec. 7. Ryder has been wrestling since kindergarten.
Ryder is also in his second year on the varsity football team where he plays defensive end; and he is also a catcher on the JV baseball team for the Bluejays, a position he has held for one year.
Aside from sports, Ryder is actively involved in 4-H, enjoys playing video games, and likes to ride ATV and snowmobiles “every now and then.” Ryder is the son of Geoff Depies and Katrina Depies, both of Merrill.
Ryder currently holds a 4.0 GPA and hopes to wrestle for Madison following graduation, although he is not yet sure of his major for college.
