Throughout the day, Bulldogs took wins against Gunnison (36-24), Delta (47-30) and Palisade (42-30) while also losing to Grand Junction (64-6) and Cedaredge (47-18).

Miki Klimper went into the season ranked highest among active Moffat County athletes — fourth in the state’s 3A rankings in the 170-pound division — claiming a 4-1 day, complete with two pins. At 120, Jay Carrico had the same results of 4-1 and two falls, Ryan Zimmerman 4-1 and one fall at 132.

The Olathe JV Invitational saw a handful of MCHS athletes place eighth of 13 teams as both Dagan White and Isiaih Herod won their weight classes at 106 and 120, respectively, White 2-0 and Herod 3-0, each winning every match by fall.

Also placing were 3-1 Greg Hixson in third at 132, 1-2 Angel Bueno fourth at 113 and 1-4 Angel Alcantar fifth at 182.

Keaton Durbin (0-2), Kameron Baker (2-2), Conner Winn (0-2) and Jesus Paez (0-2) rounded out the JV squad at Olathe.
