The Nex-Tech Wireless Athlete of the Month from Western Kansas is Hoxie senior wrestler Chris Cox.
Cox captured the 220 pound state title in 3-2-1A late last month by defeating Luis Ledesma of Goodland (Dec 8-6) in the title match. Cox finished his outstanding senior season with a 35-5 record. Cox was also an all 8M-I pick in football this past fall for the 8M-I state champion Hoxie Indians. Dayton Porsch also finished with a state title for Hoxie at 145 pounds. Zack Sherman and Dylan Weimer earned fifth place finishes. The team took six wrestlers which finished third place in the state.
Nex-Tech Wireless would like to congratulate Cox on his state wrestling title and Hoxie (88.5 points) for finishing 3rd in 3-2-1A wrestling.
