Doug Zapf wins State Title!
Mar. 12, 2017 — Using a 5-2 decision over Shaler’s Ryan Sullivan, Zapf became West’s first state champion, capping a dream season for the junior lightweight, Saturday at the Giant Center.
“I can’t even put it into words,” Zapf said. “How hard I worked for this and how much I overcame to get here, it’s amazing.”
“It’s great,” West coach Brad Breese said. “I’m elated for him. Watching him win that title and thinking back on days when he couldn’t beat guys like that. He would take it so hard. He’d sit in the corner and say everything he worked for was gone, but he didn’t realize everything he worked for was still ahead of him.”
