[ARCHIVED] Mayor Jeff Porter Honors South Dade High State Champion Wrestling Team

2014 has been a banner year thus far for South Dade Senior High School athletics and they were once again front and center at the April Special Council Presentation where Mayor Jeff Porter proclaimed February 15, 2014 as South Dade High School Wrestling Team Day.

“It’s becoming a bit of a recurring event where South Dade Senior High receives a special proclamation from the City of Homestead it seems,” the mayor began. “It has been an honor for us as a council and as a community to recognize these tremendous athletes and their great accomplishments. The South Dade Senior High School Wrestling Team have won their 9th State Championship and dominated the day with a high score of 160.5 points. This school, over the years, has produced some 53 individual State Champions, second most in Florida’s history, and have either won or have been runners-up in 17 of the last 20 championships. It is no surprise, then, that head coach Victor Balmaceda is an inductee of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the only such honor to be awarded a product of South Dade. The City of Homestead is extremely proud of you and your team for your discipline, hard work and exceptional teamwork.”

On that note, Mayor Porter officially proclaimed February 15, 2014 as South Dade High School Wrestling Team Day. In January of 2014, Krome Ave. was decked in blue and white during a festive parade where the South Dade Senior High School football team was celebrated for winning a State Championship of their own; the first in the school’s history.
