Wade wins 145-pound championship
The Dolores Bears only suited up five guys in Paonia. Dolores lost its dual Friday night to 3A Cedaredge, 55-12.
On Saturday, Wyatt Wade (No. 2, coloradopreps.com) won the 145-pound championship.
"It's a good measuring stick at this point. He got a good look at his regional competition," Bears first-year coach Leo Garand said. "He won pretty handily in the final. It's a good look to see where he stands at regionals."
Dolores will wrestle Saturday morning in Ignacio as well. Garand should have a near full roster by then.
"We'll have at least eight or nine wrestlers back in the lineup," he said. "It will be nice to have a whole lineup back for this tournament and we'll get a good look at the rest of the team, as far as where they're at right now."
