Wrestling: Prairie View’s Vigil eyes three-peat

DENVER – Prairie View’s Ane’e Vigil has two state wrestling titles to his credit. By the last week in February, he’d love to have a third.

But he also said he has some things to do before the state meet begins.

“I want people to think I don’t need to work on things,” he said during the Colorado High School Activities Association’s media day for winter sports Nov. 8 at Empower Field. “But from the college level, I need to work on a lot of things. That’s where I want my wrestling to be at.”

Part of that process includes what he called “chain wrestling.”

“I want to be able to go from one move to another move to another move,” Vigil said. “A lot of high-school kids will shoot a shot, and then they pause. College kids will go for a shot, then another shot. It’s just constant movement.”

Another piece is more domination from the top position. Vigil spent a lot of time last year in the top position.

“I was so good on my feet,” Vigil said. “I was able to take the kids down. But I’m not really turning anyone from on top. I’m just taking them down and letting them up. I’m never satisfied. You can’t ever get satisfied. Not yet.”

PVHS begins the season at 7 p.m. Nov. 30, when the ThunderHawks host Legacy High School. As for Vigil, the idea of winning a third state title in as many years isn’t far from his mind.

“All the time. That’s always on my mind,” he said. “I’m missing out on some high-school things. But at the same time,  my coaches and my parents tell me it’s always going to be there, the stuff out of wrestling. It’s never going to go anywhere. Moments like this? That could slip out of my hands by making the wrong decision.”
