    Default Colorado State Tournament

    Well fellas, just about to take off for the "show" and looking forward to the intensity the next few days will bring, also meeting up with our very own "UGLY" will be grand!
    Our 1st round starts this evening at 7:00. I'm hoping next time I'm back here, our team has won it's first wrestling State title!
    Nobody in the State is giving us any chance to win the thing, more of a battle for who gets 2nd. In reality, they shouldn't think we can win it.... Ponderosa is gunning for it's fifth staight title with 7 top 4 wrestlers (10 qualified), while we have 4 top 2 wrestlers(9 qualified).
    BUT...heres where we win it. We have a few "unknowns" with no previous State tournament experience that are on the same side as the Pondo guys, which I think we'll knock them off!

    I'll fill ya in on Sunday.......


    PS-heres a story on Graff-

    Trusty, who are the unknowns that are going to knock off Pondo's studs (so we can follow)? I checked the brackets and didn't see anything like that developing.

    Trusty that was a great run you guys had. If only you 215 and heavy would advanced you would have won. Either way no one has pushed pondo like that in a while now,Congratulations.

    Well, I guess your correct on anything developing, because it didn't! We were hoping for 135 and 140 to knock Pondo out in the Semis, but WE didn't make it that far, and got bounced out in the placing rounds.

    Ugly, it was great meeting ya, sorry I didn't have more time. Thanks for the kind words, but I don't think we pushed them very hard. They are a good team and at this time deserve to be CHAMPIONS! The biggest difference between us and them, is they created their own "luck/breaks" they won all the close ones, where we lost all the close ones! We only matched up with them 1 time the entire tournament and we earned a fall over their #1 HWT!

    That was sweet!!!!

    Update: Came up short of the goal(obviously winning the title), but we'll start over tomorrow. Ended up 2nd to the team that won their 6th straight title by 32 points. We had 3 champs and 2 thirds, they had 2 champs and 6 other placers.

    Trusty it was great to meet you as well and dont worry about the time we should get together again. I thought you guys wrestled tough and I would bet pondo was nervous for a bit. Good job, I look forward to seeing that 215 freshmen develop he is an ass kicker.

    Thanks!
    Yup, not a bad year for a freshman @215, 40+ wins and 2 losses (both to State champs) and a 3rd place finish. It will be fun to see what he does once he gets up to the weight (tips the scales at 200 or so).
