Area wrestling: Soroco, Hayden go head to head at Meeker, Sailors tie Wheat Ridge

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Soroco and Hayden high school wrestling teams traveled to the Meeker Duals on Saturday, Feb. 9. While both teams are small and suffered losses due to many open weight classes, individuals had excellent showings. 

After sitting out weeks with an injury, senior Gene Bracegirdle went 1-2. He pinned his opponent from Grand Valley in the first round, but lost with a pair of pins in his next two. 

At 145 pounds, junior Darrel Ebaugh wrestled five matches, going 2-3. His two wins were both first round pins, earning one in just 59 seconds. Junior Kody Logan went 3-1, dropping a 10-6 decision to a Grand Valley wrestler before pinning his next three in 67 seconds or less. His quickest fall came in 25 seconds.

Hayden junior Payton Planansky won one of his three matches, defeating Ebaugh with a pin in 1:20. Freshman Cody Hawn also went 1-2, defeating an opponent from Palisade by pin in 1:09. 

Senior Hunter Planansky went 2-0, earning his wins by pin, while sophomore Dylan Zimmerman won his sole match with a 12-3 major decision. 

The Steamboat Springs High School wrestling team met Wheat Ridge in a dual on Thursday, Feb. 6. In the three bouts between the two teams, Steamboat won two. Jacob Skolnick defeated Allen Alford by fall at 132 pounds. At 160 pounds Ivan Reynolds won over Braxton Chaves with a pin in 30 seconds. Kirby Reeves fell via fall in 2:30 in the 145-pound match. 

Next week, all three Routt County teams will travel to regionals in Montrose on Feb. 14 to 15.
