106 pounds — Vince Cornella, Fr., Monarch: The Peak to Peak freshman was impressive throughout the season — notably at Top of The Rockies — then scored a thrilling overtime win in the state championship match.

113 — Presley Madril, Jr., Broomfield: A two-time Front Range League champion, the Eagles junior placed fifth at state.
