Wrestlers compete in Colo.


Green River wrestlers dominated in recent off season duels they competed in.

Green River High School wrestlers traveled to Paonia, Colo. this weekend to compete against some tough competition, head coach Marshall Rhodes said. Thirteen wrestlers competed in 12 duels. The wolves won 81 out of 119 matches overall. Senior all-state placers from last year, Gage Byers, Jordan Tucker and Kaycee Cochrane, competed and won many of the duals. Other wrestlers from last year’s state championship team, Justin Flores, Garrett Harris and Jacob Mortensen also competed.

“I feel that the wrestlers competed hard and improved every match,” Rhodes said. “I was especially proud of the younger wrestlers, as this was their first competition against much older kids and they fought hard and won most of the matches.”

GRHS newcomers in the duels competition team were Clayson Mele, Cody Price, Kade Flores, Kade Knezovich, Dominic Martinez, Kaden Lloyd and Payton Tucker. The incoming freshman wrestlers have been a part of the wrestling program for years, Rhodes said, and will be competing at the high school level very soon.

The wolves plan to continue their off-season practice this summer. There will be 34 wrestlers from GRHS traveling next week for a team camp hosted in Laramie.

“A great number for a summer commitment,” Rhodes said.
