— The Moffat County Bad Dogs youth wrestling team ran into some tough competition Saturday in the Rocky Mountain Nationals - Who's Bad? wrestling tournament in Denver.

The Bad Dogs were joined in the Western Stock Show Complex by nearly 2,000 wrestlers representing 213 teams in the one-day event.

Moffat County didn't claim any individual titles, but the team produced five grapplers finishing in the top six.

Devon Pontine led the way, finishing second in the 10-and-younger, 100-pound weight class.

Moffat County High School sophomore Charlie Griffiths (18-and-younger, 130 pounds) joined Mikey Bingham (10-and-younger, 85 pounds) and Deven Mosman (10-and-younger, 100 pounds) in earning a fourth-place finish.

Thomas Baker (10-and-younger, 57 pounds) finished sixth.

Two wrestlers with ties to Craig also competed in the event.

Brice Boling - a former MCHS wrestler - finished second at 133 pounds with a 3-1 record, losing only to former Bad Dog grappler Grant Hobbs.

Hobbs (4-0) took home the 133-pound title.

Despite the lack of individual titles, Moffat County finished the meet with the third-highest pin total (10) of any team at the event.

The Bad Dogs continue Western Slope Wrestling League action Jan. 17 in Fruita.

Notes:

Jake Bingham had to retire from the tournament after suffering an injury in his first match.
