Senior D’Andre Brown won the state title in wrestling Feb. 21, making him the second wrestling champion at this school, and the first time a Wylie school has had two wrestling state champions. 

“It was a magical moment because my friends and family were there to see,” Brown said.

Junior Emiliano Saucedo placed third at state in his weight class.

“It felt great to win at state, even though I could have done better, but my result was better than last year,” Saucedo said.

Out of over 185 teams in 5A, East placed 14th.

“I’ll miss the nights in the gym alone practicing my moves,” Brown said.
