At two different meets, the Craig Middle School wrestling team showed why it is one of the best in the state.

The Bulldogs split up last weekend, sending the bulk of the team to the Western Slope League Championships in Meeker and some of its other members to a Rocky Mountain Nationals regional competition in Fruita.

Despite being without some of its top wrestlers in Meeker, CMS won the meet in convincing fashion. The Bulldogs had five first-place finishers and scored 138 points. Steamboat Springs was second with 100.5 points.

Meanwhile, at the Region 6 meet in Fruita, 11 wrestlers placed in the top eight, qualifying them for the Rocky Mountain Nationals state meet in Denver this weekend.

Four CMS wrestlers took runner-up honors in Fruita. With wrestlers from all classifications competing in Fruita, the competition was tough but still yielded good results for the Bulldogs.

CMS took fifth place in the team standings at the Region 6 tournament.
