Charlotte Latin School tenth grade wrestler Sam House
has been named the Carefree Boat Club Rising Star
of the Week. The son of Brad and Elizabeth House
competes in the 160 pound weight class. He is also a
member of the Charlotte Latin School Baseball Team.

Sam talks about his wrestling experiences, “one of my
favorite aspects of the Charlotte Latin wrestling program
is the influence the varsity wrestlers have on the Middle
School team as we have combined practices every day.
I’ll never forget my first practice as a 6th grader, never
having stepped on the mat, when a starting Varsity
wrestler took one on one time to teach me technique. Now as a starter on the
Varsity team, it’s rewarding to make that investment in our younger athletes
and pay back what others have taught me.”

Inside the classroom Sam is an Honors student and also plays cello in the
Upper School Orchestra. He enjoys his experience as a Charlotte Latin
student, “I am thankful to be at a school like Charlotte Latin, where academics
are a priority. As a student-athlete, I’m supported by my coaches, who
emphasize the importance of good grades, and by my teachers, who are
there to cheer me on while I’m competing.”

Congratulations to Sam House
