Cutter Garrison returns as Cedaredge High School's wrestling coach for the 2017-18 season. Garrison took six wrestlers to state last season with Sean Dale placing fourth in his 120-pound weight division and Jerad Hulteen earning a sixth-place finish at 152.
Other Bruins making the trip to state included Ryan Imhoff (106), Alex McCracken (126), David Schipmann (138) and Colton Hoerr (145).
Garrison will be assisted in the mat room by Bob Overturf, Jason Robidoux and Kris Nieto.
With the upcoming season, Garrison mentioned all his state qualifiers from last year as wrestlers to keep an eye on in the coming season.
Garrison was brief on his assessment of the fortunes for his team and confidently noted, "We should be competitive all season long."
The Bruins, as with all Delta County teams, began their season at last weekend's CMU Duals and are slated to participate in the Delta tournament scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 9, beginning at 9 a.m.
The election results are in at the local, state and national level, and as expected, Democrats are doing well in state and national races. Colorado has elected Jared Polis as governor; nationally the Republicans appear to retain control of the Senate while Democrats now control the House of Representative.
With a ballot full of local and state measures, voter turnout in Delta County topped 71%, with 15,889 ballots cast. Statewide, voter turnout was just over 52%.
Of the three Delta County residents seeking state offices, Matt Soper won over Thea Chase in State Representative Dist. 54; Mike Mason lost to Julie McCluskie in State Representative Dist. 61; and Olen Lund lost to Kerry Donovan in State Senate Dist. 5.
Locally, in the City of Delta voters rejected a .5% sales tax increase to fund recreation, as well as recreational marijuana sales. The sale of medical marijuana and cultivation/manufacturing facilities was approved by a slim margin. Delta voters also gave the city the green light to move forward with selling or trading the Cottonwood and Riverbend Park, and to sell the old Municipal Light and Power Building.
