The Hotchkiss Bulldogs will wrestle under a new head coach when they open the season this Saturday at the Buena Vista Dual Team tournament. Richard Flores, a teacher at Hotchkiss K-8 school who coached the middle school program for several years, replaces Glen Suppes, head coach of the Bulldogs wrestling program for more than a decade.
Hotchkiss basketball coach Kyle Crowder is expecting a lot of good things from juniors Andrew Tiedeman, Wesley Hardin and River Panish this season. He'll need the experience after the Bulldogs lost six seniors last season.
Just two days after placing second at the state 2A cross country finals and leading her team to the state championship, Hotchkiss senior Natalie Anderson was one of two high school students in the state to win the Wendy's High School Heisman award.
Each year, Wendy's awards one male and one female senior from each of the 50 states with the Heisman.
