Klein High Senior Isaac Sheeren and Klein Oak Junior Rylee Ferranti both can once again add 'Champion' to their long list of latest achievements. These dedicated student-athletes won First Place at State at the UIL Wrestling Championship for their weight class. 

These two talented athletes have been crowned State Champions for their respective weight classes for two years in a row!

Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown expressed great joy in the outstanding success of these diligent student-athletes who clinched victory at the State Wrestling Championship. 

"Isaac and Rylee's remarkable achievement is a testament to their unwavering commitment, resilience, and talent in pursuing their athletic aspirations," Dr. McGown said. "Isaac and Rylee have shown tremendous dedication, perseverance, and skill in pursuing their passion, and their tenacity has paid off with gold medals. Congratulations to these students and their coaches on this excellent achievement!"

Klein ISD Executive Director of Athletics and Student Services Brandon Baker was overjoyed for these students and knows their success is a proud testament to the talent and dedication Klein ISD possesses in its many athletic programs.

"Witnessing Rylee and Isaac clinch a state championship medal was inspiring," Mr. Baker said. "Their achievement, alongside their team and coaches, epitomizes the standard of athletic excellence in Klein ISD. Their success, both on and off the mat, fills me with immense pride, and I eagerly anticipate their future accomplishments."

For Isaac Sheeren, this win has been a long time coming. The dedicated wrestler had previously won State multiple times in the 6A 175-pound weight class and placed in the top ranks in 2022 at the 170-pound weight class.

"Competing for the last time in my senior year, surrounded by my supportive coaches and teammates, felt like the end of a special chapter," Sheeren said. "Though it's sad to say goodbye, I'm grateful for all the happy moments at Klein. Moving on feels inspiring, and I'm excited for what lies ahead."

Klein Oak Junior Rylee Ferranti is known for her hard work, dedication to wrestling, and representing her school to the best of her ability. The natural leader is an excellent example to her fellow Panthers and motivates each person she interacts with.

"Winning last year brought a lot of pressure. It was tough having everyone tell me what to do, but it made me realize how much it meant to me and others,” Ferranti said. “I enjoyed every moment at the state level, and I owe it all to my family, friends, teammates, and my supportive boyfriend. I gave it my all, and it paid off."

Congratulations to both Isaac and Rylee on securing the Wrestling State Championship. Your #KleinFamily is so proud of you, your hard work, and how you always show up at your best.
