Peyton Marsh, daughter of Gregg and Jennifer Marsh, is our Jet’s Pizza Female Athlete of the Week.
She is a senior at Page High School and a member of the girls wrestling team. She is a two-time state qualifier and came in fifth place in the girls state in 2017.
Marsh said her father has been a wrestling coach for over 20 years and she said she “liked the idea of being the first girl at PHS” to compete.
When asked what inspires her to train and compete she said, “setting an example for future female wrestlers and having my coaches push me.”
One of her biggest role models and inspirations is her father, Gregg. She said that he is always in her corner and is a “lifelong best friend.”
Marsh’s coach said of her, “Peyton has made historical strides at Page High by starting a girls wrestling program and placing at the state tournament. Her relentless pursuit of success is admirable and encouraging to all those around her.”
After finishing this year at PHS, she plans to attend Columbia State for two years and major in marketing and business.
