Steamboat’s Mader ‘Outstanding’ at Delta

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Springs High School wrestling team battled the snow and traveled to the Delta Panther Invite on Saturday, Dec. 14.

After a day that saw four Sailors earn top-three finishes, senior Spencer Mader was awarded the Outstanding Wrestler award.

Mader won the 132-pound bracket with a pair of pins and a win by injury default. The Sailor pinned Aaron White of Buena Vista in a minute and 11 seconds. In the next round, Mader met Sean Dale of Cedaredge, and won by injury default.

That propelled Mader to the championship match against Ben Koch of Delta. The pair battled for nearly two periods, but the Sailor pinned Koch in 3:51.

Steamboat senior Tucker Havel won the 138-pound bracket. He pinned four opponents, three in the first period.

Sailors senior John Slowey was just shy of a first-place finish. He pinned Angelo Perea of Coal Ridge in 50 seconds. He earned a fall in the second round in 1:50 and won by injury default in the semifinals.

Slowey met Levi Peterson of Paonia in the 220-pound championship. After three periods, Peterson was the victor by way of a 10-6 decision, serving Slowey his first loss of the season.

Steamboat freshman Cole Muhme placed third in the 106-pound bracket.
