The state championship meet, held Feb. 22-23 at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, offered the Taos Tiger wrestling team the full spectrum of sports experience, from the glory of a championship win to the pain of unexpected loss and injury.

Estevan Valerio claimed a gold medal Saturday in the 182-pound divison and Dominic "Red" Lopez brought home the silver in the heavyweight division.  Five other Taos  wrestlers placed in the top six.
