Cade Lucio
Freshman, 120 pounds
Although Cade Lucio had an impressive Jr High
career for the Jr Drillers, his transition to the
high school level is nothing short of impressive.
Throughout his freshman season Cade has been
steadily improving and steadily climbing up the
rankings. For a team that graduated several
talented seniors last season, the Drillers needed
its younger wrestlers to step up in a big way.
Cade has done just that. He enters the State
Championships as the #14 seed in the 120
pound bracket. His first opponent on his quest
for a CA State Championship will be Callum
Kremer of Chester HS.
