Sophomore Max Gonzales battled in the state wrestling championships to place an impressive 3rd place. As a Sophomore Gonzales was one of the youngest kids competing and he was the first wrestler to place in the top three at Rangeview in seven years.

“It feels great,” said Gonzales, “my goal was to at least place 3rd and I did.”

“It’s very exciting to see Max take 3rd” said head coach Tim Corby, “he wrestled hard all tournament and had an impressive pin to set his place in the finals.”

Gonzales lost to the two time state champion in a hard fought battle. Senior Sam Maes also represented Rangeview in the state tournament and wrestled great until he was faced with an ankle injury a match away from placing.

The team ended the season great, and with wrestlers like Gonzales leading the charge, has a lot to look forward to for years to come.
