Rose Hill’s Payton Sholander – Wichita Area Athlete Spotlight Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Hayden Swope

Payton Sholander from Rose Hill was voted the Wichita Small School Girls Wrestling Poll Winner. As a junior last season, Sholander had a record of 27-10. 

“Being one of the athletes chosen for the magazine means a lot to me, and I hope that I exceed everyone’s expectations this year,” Sholander said.

Sholander spent the offseason traveling far and wide keeping up with her skills on the mat. 

“In preparation for this season I have been to a few tournaments including USA Midwest Nationals, War of Roses, Cosmic Clash, Central Cup, Summer Scuffle, and other dual teams,” Sholander said. “Some weaknesses I want to improve on are getting better on bottom and getting more confident when I am wrestling.”

With big goals for the 2022 season, Sholander has been working to improve her weaknesses for the upcoming year. 

“The goals I am focused on this year are winning regionals and winning state,” Sholander said. “My areas of improvement are working to get better in uncomfortable situations, and getting better at bottom moves.”

Sholander plans to continue wrestling at a higher level after high school, while continuing her education. 

“After high school I plan on attending college and wrestling,” Sholander said. “I am waiting on more offers before I make my decision.”
