Student-athletes were busy as well. High school sophomore, Ramiro Guerrero Jr, placed 4th in the individual state wrestling meet at Ford Field. Then the Power Lifting team made a strong showing at the state meet with Gia Tracy placing 11th, Arianna Rodriguez 6th, Anthony Polley 6th, and senior Will Howard bringing home silver in 2nd place.
