Meet Jack Morris
Jack Morris is in the 9th grade at MICDS - Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School. Despite being more challenging, he really enjoys high school thus far. Jack has been excelling in his school’s wrestling program since seventh grade. Prior to wrestling, Jack swam on the swim team, but practice became unappealing to him. Jack says “I think I really got into wrestling when I realized ball sports (football, baseball, and tennis) weren’t really going to work out. I’m thankful that we have to play two sports each year at my school, because I may not have started if I didn’t need another sport.”
