Craig Middle School wrestling has all but swept its season.
The Bulldogs added a district championship to their list of honors this season with a big win Saturday in Rangely as seven individuals rose to the top of their weight classes.
Among the 70-pound athletes, CMS’s Caden Call, Logan Montgomery and Kael Poe fought it out for first place, with Call ending the day on the podium, while at 75, Dylan Zimmerman had only two opponents in his way to win, finishing the year undefeated and without a single point scored against him.
Dagan White and Ryan Duzik picked up a victory, as did Tyler Fortune, Daniel Caddy and Riley Nelson.
Montgomery, Anthony Duran, Kameron Baker and Kevin Hernandez each took second, while in third Poe and Trevor Martinez, as well as Kaden Cox, who, despite a loss in the semifinals, had more pins than any grappler, taking each of his four wins by fall.
Placing fourth were Blake Juergens, Angel Bueno, Jesus Paez and Sean-Luke Colley, with Kyle Robinson and Daniel Cruz each in fifth.
While the school-sanctioned schedule is technically finished, wrestlers aren’t done just yet, many opting to head to the Colorado Middle School State Regionals March 26 in Grand Junction, hosted by Rocky Mountain Nationals.
