Skyline’s Grayden Bridwell stares in on Windsor’s Vincent Fortin-Munoz during their Class 4A 152-pound semifinal at the state tournament on Saturday, March 13, 2021 in Pueblo.


106 – Calvin Mendez, So., Skyline: The sophomore placed fifth in 4A, winning an overtime tiebreaker over Mesa Ridge’s Mickail Skeldum in the fifth-place match.

113 ­– Alex Carrillo, Jr., Frederick: After finishing runner-up at regionals to eventual state champion Kobe Johnson of Loveland, the Warriors junior placed fourth at state.

120 – Ramon Salazar, So., Erie: Wrestling his way to the state championship match in 4A before he fell, Salazar finished runner-up and is still just a sophomore.

126 ­– Dillon Roman, Jr., Monarch: Grinding his way through some close matches at state, Roman made it all the way to the third-place match where he was victorious over Douglas County’s Max Black.

132 – Oran Huff, Sr., Lyons: For the second time in his high school career, Huff defeated a two-time state champion in the title bout to join Colorado’s short list of three-time state champs.

138 – Vince Cornella, Sr., Monarch: Putting the finishing touches on a brilliant prep career, the wrestler of the year won the 5A state title to become the 29th four-time state champion in Colorado history.
