Outlaws Athlete Spotlight

Wyatt Maffey is Sisters High School’s current spotlight athlete.

Maffey is a junior wrestler and two-year varsity letterman for the Sisters Outlaws. The son of Travis Maffey and Jenalee Piercey, Wyatt took third place in the 132-pound weight class last winter at the Special District #4 Regional Tournament and also represented Sisters High School (SHS) at the OSAA State Championships.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, wrestling is one of the high-contact sports that has been temporarily prohibited. Prior to the latest closure of indoor gyms and athletics, Wyatt took advantage of the training SHS was able to do with wrestling and was doing everything possible to prepare himself for the upcoming season, which has now been pushed back to May and June.

He continues to show up consistently to outdoor workouts, and is a leader amongst his peers for his hard work and dedication.

In addition to wrestling, Wyatt is also a member of the Outlaws football and lacrosse teams. Last season Wyatt was an honorable mention all-conference defensive back for Head Coach Neil Fendall and was a varsity letterman for the lacrosse team as a freshman for Head Coach Paul Patton.

Wyatt is a leader for the Outlaws on and off the field and is a great student in the classroom with a current GPA of 3.7. He leads by example and will be a positive for his teams when athletics resume for SHS this spring.
