Chaminade wrestler pushes hard even in the off-season

Danny Conley recently made history for the Chaminade wrestling team, winning the program’s first state championship. Conley won the 220-pound Class 4 state championship.

After making history at Chaminade College Preparatory School, Danny Conley began preparations for the next high school wrestling season as soon as the last one ended in February.

The off-season is no time to rest in his quest for improvement, which comes as no surprise to Chaminade coach Todd Schumacher.

"To be the best at what you do in life or work or whatever, you always have to think about what more you can do," Schumacher said. "Danny's a guy who's always thinking about what else he can do to get better."

Many sources record it as the first Marian apparition in history.
