Garrett Stewart struggled at times this wrestling season to return to the form he had a year ago when he was a state qualifier. Stewart, the Moffat County High School varsity wrestling team’s only returning state qualifier this year, surprised his team and himself last season when he took fourth place at the regional meet and joined two seniors in Denver for state. Despite problems this season, Stewart, an MCHS junior, wrestled his way to another fourth-place finish Saturday in the 4A regional tournament at Eagle Valley High School in Gypsum — the only Bulldog grappler to advance to the 4A state meet. However, Stewart said he wasn’t surprised this time.
