    Default Northern Colorado crowns three at Cowboy open


    LARAMIE, Wyo. - At the 36th annual Cowboy Open, the Northern Colorado wrestling team came away with three first-place medals as well as one second-place.

    Junior 125-pounder Tony Mustari successfully defended his title in the elite division, winning all three bouts. In three seasons, Mustari has one third-place finish and two titles in the Cowboy Open. Mustari won two decisions in the opening rounds and then won in overtime in the title match, defeating Wyoming's Michael Martinez 5-3.

    True freshman Mitchell Polkowske posted a perfect 5-0 record in the amateur division at 149 pounds, while redshirt freshman Tanner Weiks also went 5-0 at 157 pounds. Polkowske was dominant in his division, winning his first two bouts by technical fall and his final three by major decisions, including a 17-5 victory over Jesse Snider of Colorado School of Mines in the first-place match. Weiks had one major decision and four decisions, including a double overtime victory in the quarterfinals to keep his title hopes alive. In the finals, Weiks won a 4-3 decision over Michael Hader, wrestling unattached.

    Redshirt freshman Brandon Kammerzell posted a 3-1 record on the day to finish second in the amateur division at 174 pounds. He won two decisions and one major decision before falling 8-2 to Western Wyoming's Johnny Ortega in the finals.

    Freshmen Zach Maes and Lance Gallegos also had good days in the amateur division. Maes went 5-2 at 125 pounds getting two pins and two major decision wins, while Gallegos had a record of 4-2 falling in the consolation semifinals. He also had two pins on the day.

    I saw that their good 141 pounder (can't think of his name; the "Judo guy")was listed on their roster, but hasn't shown up yet in the lineup. Did he graduate, or was he wrongfully listed in the lineup?
