Darian Manzanares, Centennial’s all-time record holder in wrestling wins (144), signed yesterday to compete collegiately at New Mexico Highlands University, located in Las Vegas, New Mexico.  

Darian was a three sport athlete at Centennial, competing in Cross Country, Wrestling, and Baseball.  However, on the wrestling mat is where Darian shined brightest as a Bulldog.  Along with owning the all-time win record for Centennial, Darian also owns the following records: Most three-point near falls in a career and a season, most two-point near falls in a career and a season, most season and career tech falls, most career near-falls, most team points, most wins in a season with 43, and most takedowns in a match with 14.

Darian’s official collegiate signing ceremony included a few words from principal Javin Baker, athletic Director Bob Caricato, and Centennial wrestling coach Gary Adamson, was a special capstone to a school year in which Darian was also inducted into Centennial’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

New Mexico Highlands, which competes in the NCAA II Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, will receive not only a stellar athlete, but also a young man that enjoys contributing to a culture and campus community as well.  Darian was also known at Centennial for his strong presence in the school’s student run media associations including the school newspaper, The Centennialight, and the Media and Broadcasting Club (CMBC) as well.
