AARON BUTLER, Monticello, wrestling: This senior joined an elite class of wrestlers this past weekend as he became just the 17th wrestler in state history to claim four state titles, and the first from his school.
"It is pretty awesome to be a four-timer, and then to be the first one from Monticello High School," Butler said.
"It is a pretty amazing feeling. It has never been done before at this school."
The 135-pound grappler was named the outstanding wrestler at the state tournament for the second consecutive year.
Butler finished his career with more than 160 wins and with more than 125 of those coming by pin.
KAYLIE ROBISON, Jordan, basketball: This three-sport senior's attitude might be one of her best attributes, although her skill on the court have helped Jordan to a No. 2 seed in the 5A state tournament.
"Kaylie is a team captain and is one of the most positive and fun-loving individuals on the team," said Jordan coach Greg Cramer.
Robison is a talented, versatile athlete. It is a huge asset to the Beetdiggers to have a post player who can rebound against the state's best and then also run the floor. In the Beetdiggers' win over Alta, she scored 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. In the team's final game of region play, Robison finished with 22 points."She runs the court well and has great hands," said Cramer of the volleyball, basketball and softball player.
