Moffat County wrestling has struggled recently in team competitions, but has individuals succeed. The Bulldogs small team size has meant they often have to surrender several weight classes to their opponents due to not having a wrestler to compete. With the team moving to Class-3A from 4A this year, that could change. Coach Roman Gutierrez knows the team will still be outnumbered in some dual meets, but believes they will have a chance to take some as well. Whatever the team’s record ends up being, the Bulldogs sport several individuals with aspirations to go deep in the state tournament.
