Rio Hondo College wrestlers not only excelled on the mat this past season, but also in the classroom. On Tuesday, the California Community College Wrestling Coaches Association announced that eight Roadrunner student-athletes had been named Academic All-Americans.
The eight honorees for head coach Mike Tellez broke a single-season state record. Sacramento City College also had eight named to the list to tie Rio Hondo for most in the state this year.
Leading the way for Rio Hondo was freshman Rudy Bojorquez with a team-best 3.70 grade point average.
