The Cedaredge Bruins had several athletes advance past first-round bouts at last week's Warrior Classic in Grand Junction. Leading the way was the fifth-place finish by 195-pounder Tré LaBossiere.
Other Bruins advancing past opening-round matches included 132-170-pounder Zach Anderson, 182-pounder Landon Eckhart and Anthony Antuna at 220.
LaBossiere's road to the fifth-place bout started with a pin over Hotchkiss' Devon Curtis, 3:05, in the first round. A win by pin over Roosevelt's Miguel Maldonado took just 0:45 in round two. A pinfall loss to Olathe's Chayden Harris in the quarterfinals led to LaBossiere's fifth-place bout against Grand Junction's Jacob Olsen. Olsen won by a 12-4 decision.
Hamilton scored a 14-5 major decision over Delta's Brendon Starr in first-round action but lost to Pueblo Centennial's Darian Manzanares by pin in round two.
Anderson was quick to pin Centaurus' Collin Roberts in his first 170-pound bout, 0:55. Moffat County's Mikenzie Klimper pinned Anderson in the second round.
At 182, Eckhart had a first-round bye and advanced to the second round where he met Center's Saloman Chavez. Chavez eliminated Eckhart with a pin.
The Bruins' 220-pounder, Antuna, received a bye and a ticket to the second round.
Norwood's Ethan Barnes was ready for the bout and scored a pinfall to end Antuna's day.
