April 12, 2004
TEMPE, Ariz. - The Arizona State wrestling team will hold its annual awards banquet 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 14, inside the Hobbs Family Stadium Club located on the fifth floor of the Carson Student-Athlete Center, Thom Ortiz, ASU head coach, announced. The banquet, which is $20 and open to the public, will honor the accomplishments of the team and its members for the 2003-04 season as well as recognizing the final seasons of the Sun Devils two seniors.
Seniors Ron Renzi (Burke, Va.) and Nick Frost (Tucson, Ariz.) competed in their final seasons for the maroon and gold this year as the team finished fifth in the Pac-10 Conference and 26th in the NCAA Wrestling Championship standings. Both Frost and sophomore Ryan Bader (Verdi, Nev.) earned their second conference titles in as many years to lead the team. From there, Bader went on to capture fourth place at the national meet to add to the team's streak of 30 years in a row with at least one All-America honor earned.
