Last Friday was a huge day for the Uvalde High School wrestling team.
The Coyotes captured the District 14-5A wrestling championship and the Lobos claimed district runner-up honors in district action staged in Harvey Kinchlow Gym.
To top that, all 14 members of the team qualified for this weekend’s regional wrestling meet at Austin.
UHS head wrestling coach Nicholas Hernandez praised the performance of his team.
“I am proud of what these young athletes have accomplished individually and as a team,” said Hernandez. “Our boys won the first district title and the girls won the first runner-up title in school history. I think this shows the commitment our athletes have to excelling in this sport.”
Five UHS wrestlers won top district individual honors.
