Athlete of the Week - Doug Lazo, SR., York

An injury-riddled senior season didn’t keep York senior Doug Lazo from qualifying for his first state wrestling tournament. Lazo, who has battled knee and ankle injuries all school year, earned a trip to Omaha after placing third in the 220-pound division of the Class B, District 2 wrestling tournament at Northwest High School in Grand Island Saturday. All of Lazo’s three wins on Saturday came via pin in times of 1 minute, 27 seconds, 1:43 and 22 seconds. Lazo’s lone loss on the day came to Schuyler’s undefeated Jesus Maganda. The state wrestling tournament begins this Thursday at the CHI Health Center.
