— The team placed first overall.

The first place win as a group included five individuals rising to the top in their weight classes — Dagan White, Phoenix Harris, Daniel Caddy, Jefferson Piatt and Drake Doherty.

White, Harris and Piatt each also won the champion at the March 14 district tournament in Oak Creek. White and Piatt have yet to lose a match this season, 17-0 and 16-0, respectively, with White taking five straight pins and Piatt four during the day.

CMS athletes taking second in their class included Joe Neal, Tyler Fortune and Victor Silva. Logan Montgomery, Gregory Hixson and Jared Atkin each placed third, while Kameron Baker and Gregory Spears were both fourth.

Also contributing to the CMS win were Blake Juergens, Colton Terry, David White, Isaiah Herod, Chace Jeffcoat, Sean Byers, Jace Booco, Daniel Cruz, Zachary Patterson and James Christiansen, in a tourney that saw the team accumulate 204 total points, well ahead of second place Grand Valley’s 141.5.

Wrestlers will next attend regionals in Grand Junction to qualify for the state level.
