Morgan Lemke is a Junior at De Soto High School. She is a wrestler, and competes in Track (Shot Put & Discus).  Morgan has competed in wrestling since age 9.  She never gives up, even after dislocating her elbow and breaking her growth plate in her left arm.

She started track as a 7th grader, and has done very well. As a sophomore, Morgan made it all the way to State and finished 8th throwing the discus.  She trains very hard all year round for both sports, never saying I’m too tired or I’m just not feeling like it today.
