South Dade Wrestling Breaks Record with 4th State Championship with 6 State Champs and 10 Wrestlers making the podium

This past weekend the South Dade Wrestling team capped off the year in record breaking fashion by winning an unprecedented 4th State Championship in a row.

South Dade is the first team in Dade County history to win 4 state titles in a row. The BUCS dominated the Class 3A Championships winning by over 130 points.

10 out of 11 BUCS made the podium, placing in the top 6 in their respective weights, 6 were crowned State Champions!!!

Freshman Sensation; Bretli Reyna capped off an UNDEFEATED season of 58-0 with an individual state title. He didn't just win the state championship he crushed his competition.

Defending state champion, Elijah Varona was injured in the warm ups when two heavyweights fell on his ankle possibly breaking it but he would not be denied another title. Varona not only won back to back state championships, he did it on one leg.

Senior, Alyis Mursuli stunned the field winning his first state championship in his career knocking off 3 wrestlers who were ranked higher than him.

Sophomore, Brevin Balmeceda won his second State Championship with his 205 career win. Brevin is on pace to eclipse a Dade County and South Dade record with most career wins.

Senior, Chei Hill also won his second State Championship in his career and capped off an UNDEFEATED season at 58-0. He completed his career with 223 wins and had an undefeated win streak of 89 matches.

Last but not least, Kyron Taylor won a second state championship as well. He also finished undefeated this season and has 162 career wins. To win his second state title Jerzy had to beat a 3x state champion and the #6 ranked kid in the NATION!!!!

Todd Perry made it to the finals before losing but became the State Runner Up in the process. Also coming up big for the BUCS was Tyler Orta who placed 6th, Christian Morales placed 5th, Mikael Fundora placed 4th and Corey Harvey placed 5th. The state championship couldn't have been won without any of these young men. Congratulations for making history, breaking records and bringing home the school's 12 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP.
