Husky Wrestling Family,
Fresh off of a 4th Place Team finish at State and a Sectional Champtionship, your Huskies are hungry to build on their previous success as we welcome back a number of last year's heavy hitters. We're eager to unleash returning state place winners Isaiah Valenzuela (2nd), Jonah Muhammad (2nd), Freddy Latu (3rd), and Elijah Sobas (3rd), as well as returning state qualifiers Preston Ferrell, Brandon Russell, and Ryan Castillo. We also return a trio of wrestlers who represented team Arizona over the summer at the USA Wrestling Championships in Fargo, ND: Issac Grier, Chance Dixon, Kobe Joaquin. If all of that weren't enough, we're excited for our largest and most talented Freshman class in my time coaching at Hamilton. It surely is a great time to be a Husky! Come out and support us this season as we look to make a push for a State Championship!
Our Lady Huskies are quickly being recognized as Alphas in the Arizona Girls Wrestling landscape. In the innaugural girls wrestling season, we were proud to have Jennifer Curry (1st) and Anika Barker represent the Huskies in the AIA State Tournament. Former Husky Jennifer Curry was awarded the Tricia Saunders Award for Excellence on the mat, in the classroom, and in the community, a recognition given to only one female wrestler per state each year. Jennifer also went on to become Hamilton Wrestling's First ever All-American, with a 6th place finish last summer in Fargo, ND. Over the offseason,our girls competed in the Freetyle State tournament and finished with an impressive FOUR placewinners: Jennifer Curry (1st), Gabby Majewsky (2nd), Yessy Marquez (2nd), and Anika Barker (3rd). We are excited to see what the offseason of dedication has in store for us this upcoming season. Get out there and support these girls as they continue to be trailblazers in the sport of Womens Wrestling.
