Before High School, Senior Donna Wrestler Precious Hernandez was a dancer. After this weekend, she is a state champion.
Down 0-2 with just seconds left before a key stoppage, Hernandez did the unthinkable.
She won crucial points just before a key stoppage and, riding the momentum from the move, pinned her opponent in the very next sequence to become the very first valley wrestler to ever win a state title in the heavyweight division.
Hernandez is just the fourth Valley wrestler to ever bring home the state title.
Her performance was historic, and, for that, she is this week’s DHR Health Athlete of the Week!
