Maize won two titles at the state wrestling tournament Saturday at Hartman Arena. The Eagles finished third in the team standings, with seven of nine wrestlers who qualified earning medals.

Senior Devin Onwugbufor and sophomore Duwayne Villalpando placed first, winning their first state titles. Onwugbufor won the 138-pound weight class, defeating Devin Gomez of Valley Center 3-1. Villalpando won at 152 pounds, defeating Jarrett Bendure of Mill Valley 9-4.

Villalpando didn’t hold back when asked what he was expecting coming into state.

“I knew I was going to win it all.”  Villalpando said.

Onwugbufor’s dad said he’s proud to say the least.

“He’s had two years of injuries, and it’s been a long journey for him,” Ike Onwugbufor said. “He’s been wrestling since he was 5, and that’s the gift God gave him.”

Other Maize wrestlers who placed are Aiden Campbell, second place; Kyle Haas, third place; Jacob Quiggle, fifth place; Junior Camacho, sixth place; and Talon Fitzmier, sixth place.
