Craig Middle School wrestlers saw a much larger field with some much larger schools during a weekend meet in Montrose, but that increase in toughness is what will add to their resolve as the season continues.

CMS finished second overall out of 19 teams during the Centennial Braves Invitational, trailing only Front Range school Cheyenne Mountain in the competition.

At 80 and 105 pounds respectively, Brody Wiser and Dylan Zimmerman remained unbeaten for the day as each pinned four opponents, Zimmerman also taking one win by forfeit.

Both Caden Call (90) and Anthony Duran (110) made it to the final round and neither gave up the fall in losses by decision — 2-0 and 6-4 — to place second.

In the same weight class, Colton Jones was bound to meet teammate Zimmerman at some point and lost to him in the semifinals but recovered with a 3-0 win against Tristan Charles of Cheyenne Mountain to earn third. At 120, Kalub West was on the losing end of an 8-4 sudden victory but also took the bronze with a 5-2 win over Bruno Mesa of Cheyenne Mountain.

In fourth were Noah Duran (75), Billy Lawton (125), Pepper Rhyne (130); fifth went to Russell McGruder (90), Michael Voloshin (140) and Norman Cruz (145); and Blake Hill (135) placed sixth.

With some brackets fuller than others, six of the Bulldogs were named eighth place: Carter Behrman, Keegan Herod, Izzac Pierce, Alexander Black, Ethan Hafey and Ryan Duzik.

Also battling during the weekend were Tyren Schaefer, Easton Briggs, Abby Martinez, Kannon Gustin, Thomas Weber, Brendon Wait, Hugo Vargas, Kael Poe, Cyrus Goldsmith, Tucker Zimmerman, Sophie Hough Ian Hafey and Dennis Piatt.

CMS was scheduled to host a dual with Meeker at 5 p.m. Thursday, though the Cowboys cancelled. The Bulldogs will compete in the Soroco Invitational this weekend in Oak Creek.
