Ruelas

Wrestlers bring back state champion

Senior wrestler Tadeo Ruelas ’10 became Brophy wrestling’s first state champion in his 130-pound weight class at the state wrestling championships at Arizona State University Feb. 17.

“It couldn’t happen to a better kid,” said Coach Mr. Matt Gaimari. “He’s really worked hard and deserves everything he has accomplished.”

In the championship match, Ruelas beat an opponent he had lost to twice already this year, adding another state title after placing fifth as both a sophomore and junior.
