Entire Volcano Vista team qualifies for meet

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Volcano Vista is taking a team to the State Wrestling Championships for the first time ever in their school history.

It’s not the only first. The trip to state will be the first as head coach for Hawks coach Ahren Griego. At 24 years old he is the youngest high school wrestling coach in the state.

Griego heads into state with heavyweight Mike Budick looking for his first state title. Budick is off to a good start with 39 wins against no losses this season. All of his 39 victories have been first round pins.
