Zach Garza has been a staple in the Ellsworth line-up for two years now. Over the last week he had the breakout performances that the coaches have believed were coming. Garza had a combined record of 5-1 for the week. On Wednesday, Jan. 23 he had a major decision victory over Iowa Lakes. He followed it up with a 4-1 record over the weekend at the Loras Open. His only loss came in a close 6-4 decision to UNI’s Cayd Lara. Coach Spree stated, “This is exactly the performance we knew Zach was capable of. Over the past month he has had tight matches with some of the best wrestlers in the country. It was just a matter of time before we saw results he is capable of.” Next up for Zach and the rest of his fellow Panthers is their National Qualifier on Feb. 10. Garza is a native of Dumas, TX.
