Garrett Stewart went into Thursday’s first round of the 4A state wrestling tournament at the Pepsi Center in Denver as the underdog. Stewart, a Moffat County High School junior, was matched up against the No. 2 seed in the 138-pound bracket, Josh Donkle of Windsor. Donkle took control of the match early and wrestled Stewart like he knew he had the win, letting Stewart escape without resistance after almost every takedown. Despite trying time and again to get a takedown, Stewart couldn’t overcome the stronger Donkle, as the Windsor senior scored a pin with 12 seconds remaining in the second period.
