Boston Tafelski – Wrestling
Hernando – Senior
The multi-sport Tafelski opened his fourth varsity mat season 11-0, posting a perfect 8-0 slate winning at the Weeki Wachee Duals VII before reaching the 37th Brooksville-Kiwanis Invitational finals for the first time at 145 pounds.
Though he lost to 2018 state placer Andreas Bond of Lake Gibson, he helped the Leopards finish runner-up for its best finish in this event in 12 winters.
Besides wrestling, Tafelski played four seasons of football, including the last three on varsity, and will lift weights competitively for the third time in the spring.
Boston maintains 3.4 unweighted and 3.5 weighted grade point average and aspires to pursue a career in civil engineering.
Off campus, he’s extremely active with his church, Grace World Outreach. His extensive community service involvement includes parking cars for the Blueberry Festival, washing cars for fund raisers, serving a youth leader for the past 2½ years, helping to paint buildings and distributing food to the needy during Thanksgiving.
