(Milan, Ind.) - All Milan High School students came out of their classroom at 11:40 on Thursday afternoon to surprise sophomore wrestler, Kayla Roell.

All students cheered as the high school band performed the school song for spirit. Co-wrestlers, Kaleb Wilburn and Carson Betz joined her at the top of the stairs to wish her luck and explain how she impacts the rest of the wrestling team.
