His continued solid work ethic resulted in regional scores high enough to qualify him to compete in this weekend’s Western Championships, which started Friday and wrap up Sunday in Galveston, Texas.

Sam Oryn had a superb season as a second-year Level 9 competitor. He had several first- and second-place finishes and his high level of consistency at all of the regular-season meets led to a strong finish at the state championships. He is also competing this weekend in Texas.
