The 2008-09 wrestling season has been over for awhile, but the awards keep rolling in for Tucson Citizen Wrestler of the Year Kory DeBerry.

Wrestling USA Magazine this week named DeBerry the No. 1-ranked sophomore/freshman wrestler in the nation at 140 pounds.

DeBerry, who won the Class 5A Division II state championship this past season to help lead Sunnyside to its 12th-straight state team title and 28th overall, was one of five southern Arizona wrestlers to find their way into the magazine’s national rankings.

Those wrestlers include (wrestlers were ranked in one of three classes – freshman/sophomore, junior or senior):

• DeBerry, Sunnyside, 140 pounds – No. 1 (freshman/sophomore)

• Ryak Finch, Safford, 112 pounds – No. 3 (junior)

• Scott Filbert, Ironwood Ridge, 119 pounds – No. 24 (junior)

• Diego Bravo, Sunnyside, 215 pounds – No. 20 (junior)

• Anthony Pike, Sunnyside, 189 pounds – No. 15 (senior)

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
