Qualifying for the state wrestling tournament is an achievement in itself, but Garrett Stewart wasn’t satisfied with just being a qualifier. Stewart, a Moffat County High School junior, said his goal was to place in his second year at the tournament. But, following a 14-8 loss in the second round of the 138-pound consolation bracket Friday, Stewart walked off the mat without achieving his goal, having been eliminated after going 1-2 overall in Denver. “I wrestled a lot better (Friday) than I did the first day because I didn’t wrestle well on my feet (Thursday),” Stewart said. “But, there is always room for improvement and I just couldn’t get it done.”
