Ruben Hernandez- State Champion

The Comet Wrestling Club participated at the 2013 Arizona Freestyle State Championship at Highland High School in Gilbert, Arizona last weekend, where local athletes Adrian Torres and Ruben Hernandez became state wrestling champions.

Torres, competing at 170 lbs., dominated his competition by beating M. French, A. Ortiz from Tucson HS, E. Manuel (3rd at state in D-II) from Lake Havasu HS and A. Moyer (Peoria Invitational Finalist) from Westwood HS.

Hernandez, competing at 230 lbs., won two exhibition matches to capture his state title. He will be competing with Team Arizona next weekend at the America’s Cup in Anaheim, California. With all this mat time and experience, he will be a top contender as an eighth grader next year.

Torres had a great career at San Manuel High School. He has transitioned into a leader, team captain and role model for our young wrestlers. He’s an athlete every coach wants on his team.

He will be moving to Tucson at the end of this school year. Being a two-time state placer, he will be a top contender in Division II next year.
