February 19, 2012
Middle Park’s Brian Macchione defeated Walker Gonzales of Valley 6-0 in the 3A 195-pound championship match on Saturday evening to win his second-straight state title during the Colorado High School State Wrestling Championships at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
Macchione, a senior, was the state champion last year at 189 pounds under the previous weight class structure. He becomes just the third wrestler in Middle Park history to win multiple state championships, joining Jeff Crane (1969, 1970) and Ben Cherrington (1998, 2000, 2001).
