WHEATLAND – The Wheatland High School wrestling team is gearing up for a big weekend as they prepare to host the 3A East Regionals.
WHS Wrestling Coach Colt Goff said that it has been eight years since Wheatland hosted the event. He said it is a community event, with individuals and local businesses contributing to the awards and event activities that will be taking place during the tournament.
Eight teams will attend the meet.
Coach Goff said that while the Wheatland team is still a young one, and has also struggled with several long-term injuries, individually, the team members are expected to do well. Senior Cody Cagle, who recently won the Rawlins Ron Thon Championship, is also expected to do well in his final year with the Bulldogs.
Wheatland traveled to Newcastle over the weekend for their final regular season match. The team fell 42-20 at the event, but several of the Bulldogs were able to win their divisions.
Individual results for Wheatland wrestlers:
120 Ethan Read won in a 1:32 fall
132 Seth DeWitt won in TF 16-1 3:55
285 Cody Cagle won in a 3-1 decision
