Craig wrestlers compete at state, in Rangely
Craig sent five wrestlers to the Colorado Middle School State Finals on Friday and Saturday.
Craig Middle School’s Jefferson Piatt placed the highest, eighth in the 125-pound division, winning by technical fall and pin in the opening rounds following a bye.
Piatt fell in the quarterfinals, then came back with a pin one minute into the consolation round, ultimately losing the final bout by a pin to finish 3-2.
Dagan White was 2-2 during the weekend, also making it to the quarterfinals of the 75-pound bracket, with a technical fall and a pin. Phoenix Harris, 80 pounds, also was 2-2, rebounding from a first round loss by decision, 8-2, to win by forfeit then claim a pin, narrowly losing the subsequent round by a 16-15 decision.
Daniel Caddy’s record was 3-2, officially competing through Bad Dogs Wrestling, taking two falls, losing once by pin, followed by a victory and a loss, both by a 5-2 decision.
Likewise, Isaiah Herod represented Moffat County Youth Wrestling, 0-2, in the 90-pound subset during the event.
The younger members of Bad Dogs and MCYW also had a busy weekend, among more than 300 kids to compete in the Rangely Panthers Tournament.
New school record, outdone expectations at state mark bright future for Moffat County track and field
With Saturday bringing with it a new team record, a competition that nearly didn’t happen, and a bet with some slippery stakes, never let it be said that Moffat County High School track and field athletes don’t make their season exciting right up until the very end.
