Members of the state champion Paonia Eagles wrestling team show off their trophy while enjoying a parade down Grand Avenue. The 2012 team is the first on the Western Slope and the second in Colorado to qualify all 14 weight classes for the state tournament. Paonia placed nine wrestlers, breaking the team‘s 2006 and 2011 record of eight state placers. Paonia scored 179 points to win the 2A title — the 13th highest number of points scored at a state tournament. With 25, Paonia broke the state record of 21 (1994, 1999, 2001) for most pins at a state tournament. Paonia previously won state titles in 2006 and 2009. Freshman 113 Jesse Reed won the team’s only individual title, the 25th in the team’s history. Andy Pipher was also named Coach of the Year.
