Town of Windsor Mayor Kristie Melendez is set to proclaim Tuesday, March 10, “Day of Champions” as a way to recognize the Windsor High School wrestling team’s recent state championship. Melendez will make the proclamation at the beginning of the Monday, March 9 Town Board meeting at 7 p.m.
On Saturday, February 22, the wrestling team placed first in the Colorado High School Activities Association 4A State Tournament in Denver earning our local team its fourth title in the school’s history. Additionally, the Wizards finished five for five in their final matches at the Pepsi Center and won their second title in three years with 190 points.
During the state competition, two Windsor high school seniors, Dominick Serrano and Isaiah Salazar, won their fourth state titles, rounding out an impressive high school career. Several additional student athletes also earned their places on the podium at the Colorado State Championship including Vance VomBaur, Cody Eaton and Tristan Perez and podium finishers John Kenny, Vincent Fortin-Munoz, and Jake Trusty.
The proclamation also calls out the efforts of team head coach Monte Trusty and assistant coaches Milo Trusty, Ben Cherrington, Vinny Gonzales, Josh Grasmick and Dick Thomas, all of which have instilled the character values of hard-work, perseverance, teamwork and dedication in the players.
According to Melendez, “I hope that Tuesday’s Windsor Day of Champions will encourage our residents to acknowledge and recognize the importance of youth activity and athletic participation as a benefit to the community.”
