Wolverines’ 152-pound junior crowns his 40-0 season
Aaron Velasquez, mission accomplished. The Bayfield Wolverine gets an exhausted paw lifted in the air after he won the 152-pound championship at the CHSAA Class 3A State Wrestling Championships and pinned down a perfect 40-0 season.
Aaron Velasquez decisioned Intermountain League rival Dakoda Curtis of Alamosa 9-6 in the state championship match before a standing room only crowd at the Pepsi Center. “These coaches told me to keep believing, and they would get me to the top,” Velasquez said. “And they did.”
Assistant coach Marshall Hahn welcomes Aaron Velasquez into the two-time state champion’s club, saying it was getting lonely and it was time for a new member. A two-time state champion when he was a prep wrestler at Bayfield (1994, 1997), Hahn now hopes Velasquez joins him in the exclusive two-time club. “I’m hoping to get another one to join Coach Hahn,” said Velasquez, a junior.
Class 3A state champion Aaron Velasquez said Dakoda Curtis offered stubborn opposition in a rematch of the Regional final, also won by Velasquez. “Hats off to him, he came at me strong. That’s the best match we’ve had all year,” the Bayfield junior said.
Bayfield High School head coach Herb Stinson hugs his 65th state champion, Aaron Velasquez, who won the Class 3A title at 152 pounds Saturday in Denver. “That’s kind of special,” Stinson said. “I really wanted to give Coach Stinson a state champion,” Velasquez said. “He hasn’t had one in about three years.”
