Central state champ is this week's "Athlete of the Week"

Southern Colorado crowned a number of state champions at last weekend's state high school wrestling tournament in Denver. And one of those state champs is this week's "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week." Congratulations to sophomore Jeremy Baca from Pueblo Central.

Baca won the 103 pound state championship at Pepsi Center Saturday with a 3-2 win over Joel Salomon from Windsor. That put the exclamation point on a great 30-6 season for Jeremy. He is the 15th state wrestling champ in Pueblo Central history.
