The Cedaredge Bruins placed five of their 10 wrestlers at Saturday's Delta Invitational to earn 67 points. The Bruins were open at 145, 152, 182 and at heavyweight.
At 106, freshman Austin Todd pinned Coal Ridge's Isiah Ramos in 2:18 to place third. Ramos and Todd were both defeated by Grand Valley's Cody Pfau in early rounds.
Pfau may have made state history Saturday. The senior won all four of her matches, two by pin and two by major decision, to win the tournament. She may have been the first female in the state to win a tournament.
Wyatt Toothaker was pinned by cousin Garrett Toothaker of Hotchkiss in the final consolation round to place sixth in the 113 division. Wyatt finished the tournament at 2-3. And Ty Morton (126) was 2-3 to place sixth. Morton defeated Taylor McCabe of Paonia and Travis Leger of Hotchkiss to advance, then fell in the consolation round to seventh-ranked Ben Pridy of Olathe in a third-round pin.
In the upper weights, Garrett Humble (195) pinned Delta's Alejandro Medina at the second-round buzzer, then handily defeated Olmer Marquez of Basalt in 34 seconds to place third. After losing to Daniel Gustavson of Durango in his opening match, freshman Mario Madaleno won his next four matches, defeating Victor Perez, 10-7, to place third.
The Bruins will wrestle this Friday and Saturday at the annual Warrior Classic.blog comments powered by Disqus
