Athlete of the Quarter Honorable Mention
Name: Marcos Orozco

In a season riddled with injuries, no wrestler took to the UC Davis mat more than Marcos Orozco.
Competing in a team-high 37 matches, the 5-foot-5 Vacaville High School product led the squad with a career-high 25 wins and 27 dual points earned.
For the second straight year, Orozco earned a berth to the Division I National Championships. He stood as the lone Aggie on the second day of tournament after posting a 2-1 record on the first day.
For his career, Orozco is 59-47 overall with 10 pins and has accumulated nearly 90 dual points.
But his career isn’t over yet.
After steadily increasing his win totals throughout his time with the Aggies, the UC Davis wrestling program will be expecting big things from Orozco in the 2008-2009 season.
