First responders escort Moffat County wrestlers headed to state
CRAIG — First responders and city residents sent the Moffat County High School Wrestling Team off in style as members departed town Wednesday afternoon to travel to the state tournament.
The Craig Police Department, Craig Fire Rescue and Moffat County Sheriff’s Office were among the first responders to escort the team. Sirens alerted residents and businesses that the team was on the move. Many came out to clap and wave as the school bus, loaded with wrestlers, trainers and coaching staff, left town.
The Bulldogs take 11 athletes to state: Miki Klimper, Elias Peroulis, Drake Zimmerman, Toryn Hume, Chris Moschetti, Daniel Caddy, Dagan White, Jefferson Piatt, Ethan Powers, Greg Hixson and Isiaih Herod.
The Craig Press will cover the tournament with stories posting online at CraigDailyPress.com.
With an above-average snowpack following a snowy winter, local firefighters and wildlife experts are expecting a mild fire season this year, especially at higher elevations.
