To be a wrestler you need to have three things: determination, strength, and above all else, the will to do the seemingly impossible… That's exactly what Foothill's own Michael Lowman has done.

On March 2 and 3, 2012, senior, Michael Lowman, competed in Bakersfield at the California State Wrestling Tournament.

"It feels good (going to state), it shows that even though I didn't wrestle for nine or ten years like some of the other guys," says Lowman, "It shows that with hard work and dedication you don't need the most experience, you just need the biggest heart."

Lowman wrestled against some of the toughest wrestlers in California, including the defending state champion Nick Nevilles. "It was the biggest match of my life!" said Lowman after the twelve minute semi finals match. Lowman beat the top ranked 285 pound wrestler 4-3 in double over time, "It will be a match I'll never forget.""

Although Lowman took second in the finals match he has accomplished something that no other Foothill wrestler has ever done. Not only did he place at the State Tournament, he qualified for Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach, VA.

"It's something that I've always wanted to prove." said Lowman when asked about wrestling season. "I've grown up around my cousins pushing themselves to be the best, and I think growing up around that has been what has driven me to do so well this season."
Michael's dedication and hard work has truly paid off in his senior season. Good job Michael, and good luck at Nationals!
