— Middle school wrestlers from Steamboat, Hayden and South Routt County are going to the state meet this weekend in Denver after posting top finishes at the second annual Colorado Middle School Regional Tournament in Grand Junction.

Hayden finished second at the meet last weekend, behind Hotchkiss, and will be sending 16 wrestlers to the National Western Complex for the state meet, which will feature 380 of the best middle school wrestlers in the state. The top eight in each division at regionals advance to state.

Four of the Hayden wrestlers won their divisions, including 95-pounder T-Lane Mazzola, 110-pounder Errol Ormesher, 135-pounder Ryan Domson, who came to Hayden this season from the Moffat County program, and heavyweight Will Valora.

Mazzola was second at the state meet last year, and Domson placed sixth in his weight class. Both wrestlers are undefeated this season. Mazzola’s finish last weekend was impressive. The Hayden wrestler dislocated his finger in the first match, but he still managed to advance to the championship match, where he won in overtime.

Several Soroco wrestlers also will be advancing to state competition.

Colton Martindale was third at the regional meet in Grand Junction. The seventh-grader from Soroco Middle School wrestled in the 75-pound class. Teammate Austin Wisecup, an eighth-grader, finished fifth at the meet. Unfortunately, South Routt wrestler Joshua Baker will miss the state meet. He broke his sternum early in last weekend’s regional tournament and could not continue competing.

Steamboat’s Casey Williams placed first at 120 pounds, and Nick Rossman was second at 100 pounds.

Hayden is planning a send-off celebration for the 16 wrestlers at 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the middle school gym.
