History was made at the state wrestling tournament when senior Aaron Clayton became the winningest wrestler in Klein High School history.

Clayton finished his career as a Bearkat with a record of 201-24. He finished the year undefeated with a record of 65 wins and 0 losses.

“When I was a young freshman, it was my dream to go to state and win it,” he said. “I never thought it would be possible, but with all of the hard work I have put in and with help from my coaches and teammates, I have made that dream a reality.”

Also, competing in the state tournament February 20-21 in Garland Texas, the girl’s team took 3rd place, just one point shy of 2nd place.

Juniors Morgan Zogg and Kjihla Evans both won state in their respective divisions. This was Zoggs’s 2nd state title, after winning the 95-pound division last year.

“It’s amazing to know that all of your hard work has paid off,” Zogg said. “I am proud of all the girls that put in all the hard work.”

Coach John Banas said the year was filled with “lots of success” and he did not expect it after a lot of the team graduated last year. He credits the success to less injuries and all around staying healthy.

“We had to replace almost everybody in the lineup so anytime that happens, you get a lot of uncertainty,” Banas said. “We had a lot of younger kids this year, but they stepped up and it was a great season.
