2012-13: Baca went 7-11 in five open tournaments throughout the season. He placed in two of those events, finishing fourth in the Northwest Open and sixth in the Nebraska-Kearney Open.

He provided valuable depth for the Cowboys, weighing in for the one dual, and compiled two pins and one technical fall.

2011-12: Baca tallied a record of 8-13 in seven tournaments during his redshirt season. He was second in the Nebraska-Kearney Loper Open in early December, going 2-1. His two technical falls tied him for third on the team last season, and he added one pin and two major decisions.

High School: One of two Colorado natives from Wyoming's 2011-12 class, Baca finished his prep career with a 117-13 overall record under coach Efrain Tapia at Class 4A Pueblo Central High School.

Baca was a four-time state qualifier and advanced to the title match twice. As a senior, he finished runner-up in the state tournament at 112 pounds with a 44-2 mark, before earning All-America honors this summer at the National High School Coaches Association's High School Nationals with a sixth-place finish in the senior bracket.

Wrestling at 119 pounds during his junior campaign, Baca compiled a 15-3 record until an injury at the state championships ended his season. He dominated the 103-pound division as a sophomore with a 29-0 record en route to a state title, as his efforts earned him a spot on the Denver Post's All-State First Team. Baca went 28-7 as a freshman at 103 pounds. He also captured regional titles as a sophomore and senior.

A four-time letterwinner on the mat, Baca was voted team captain three times. He was a three-time honoree on the school's honor roll and was a member of National Honor Society.
