Wrestlers celebrate their Season at End of Year Banquet

Reagan Girls’ and Boys’ Wrestling Teams gathered for an end of the year celebration to recap a very different and yet very successful 2020-2021 Season!

Coach Miller and Coach Hernandez recognized Trainers Shariah Browning and Josie McEnore for their tireless work keeping the athletes on the mat, as well as their time filming matches and taking pictures.

This year the Varsity Boys were 8-4 and District Champions, Varsity Girls were 7-5, and our JV was undefeated with a 7-0 record and 3rd Consecutive District Champions!  Reagan had 12 Regional Qualifiers, 4 State Qualifiers (Jimmy Benne, Addison Garcia, Amir Musalli, Sawyer Peevy) and 2 State Placers (Addison Garcia and Amir Musalli).

The Coaches also gave out the team’s five Annual Awards.  The Gillespie Award is given to the wrestler who overcame adversity and showed resilience and mental and physical toughness during the Season – it was presented to Senior Zarek Hernandez earlier in the week.  The Gable Award is given to the male and female wrestler who demonstrated leadership and character on and off the mat throughout the Season – this year’s recipients were Sophomore Jimmy Benne and Sophomore Paris Gonzalez.  Finally, the Top Female Wrestler was given to Senior Addison Garcia who placed 2nd at State and the Top Male Wrestler was given to Senior Amir Musalli who placed 4th at State.

The following Wrestlers achieved Academic All-District:  Nathan Almaguer, Jimmy Benne, Max Collier, Jonathan Connolly, Addison Garcia, Ella Gransbery, Ethan Gutierrez, Ryan Harwood, Kaiser Jabbour, Blake Jensen, Brandon Jimenez, Maleak McGlasson-Brunson, Connor O’Brien, Sawyer Peevy, Chase Purcelli, America Rodriguez and Alex Sierra.

The following Seniors earned Academic All-State:  Max Collier, Ethan Gutierrez and Ryan Harwood.

We thank and will miss our Seniors – you all know you are always welcome back on the mat any time!  We are proud of all the athletes and know the future of Reagan Wrestling is bright.
