Mario Pecchia is a sophomore here at Struthers High School. He is in many different extracurricular activities such as football, track, and many clubs.

Pecchia has been throwing disc since seventh grade and has felt that he has improved a ton throughout the years. Throwing has given Pecchia a lot of life lessons that he can carry with him for the rest of his life. 

How much time and effort you put in is what counts. 

“It’s not always about being the best, it’s about how much effort you’re putting in and coming every day to improve yourself,” says Pecchia. 

Throwing helps him gain muscle and get all around stronger for football in the fall.  He always seeks new exciting ways to work out and throwing was a good way for him. 

He has fun throwing and also loves to see his progress over time with the work he puts in. 

“My constant improvement along with the enjoyment of the sport keeps me motivated to practice every day,” says Pecchia. 

As the track season flies by, the Wildcats as a whole are slowly improving and getting faster. They continue to work almost every day after school and have high hopes for the remaining meets of the year. 

They improve every day but also have many things they need to improve on to reach their goals. 

“Everyone is improving every day, but we still have to work on listening and being more disciplined,” says Pecchia.
