For four seasons Imperial High School's A.J. Smith has built a reputation as one of the best high school wrestlers in the Imperial Valley.
Smith's high school wrestling career culminated Saturday when he took sixth place in the 154-pound division at the state tournament in Stockton.
For many just to be able to say they were the sixth best in the state would be a major accomplishment, but for Smith, taking sixth meant there were five other wrestlers a little better.
"I was kind of happy with how I did, but I think I could've done better," said the 18-year-old senior. "It was kind of a disappointment, but I'm all right with taking sixth."
