Wolverines 33, Pirates 21

The Wolverines wrestling team started off a tough stretch of Intermountain League play with a tough win.

Bayfield beat Monte Vista on Thursday night.

“We looked real good,” BHS coach Todd McMenimen said. “Real good outings by several of the kids.”

Colter McMenimen started off the winning at 126 with a 15-0 technical fall – the first of a few, as Drake Rhodes got one at 17-0 at 138 and Joe Zink at 145. In between, Allec Rodriquez (132) got the tightest win, 4-2 in overtime.

Michael Goodman (182) got a pin, then Matt Cerdas rounded it out with a 9-4 win at 220.
