Prep Notebook: Cody Pfau excelling as a collegiate wrestler; Selsor scoring big for Mesa

Jon Mitchell

Cody Pfau is picking up right where she left off in high school as a member of the Oklahoma City University women’s wrestling team. And then some.

The Grand Valley High School graduate got off to an undefeated start in her first 10 matches this season, winning six times by technical fall and three times by pin. She’s on a squad that has posted an 8-1 dual-match record this season. The Stars, as a program, have won four Women’s College Wrestling Association national championships and are currently ranked No. 3 nationally as a team.

She’s one of three people on the 27-wrestler team who is unbeaten.

Pfau earned statewide and national recognition in February during her senior season at Grand Valley. She became the first female to win a championship-round match at Colorado’s State Championships at the Pepsi Center in Denver, earning a 6-5 decision over Fort Lupton’s Ferdinando Martinez.

Pfau, a freshman at OCU majoring in biomedical sciences, is back home for winter break. Her team doesn’t compete again until Jan. 3 at the Waldorf Open Tournament in Forest City, Iowa.

Sharaya Selsor keeps rolling for Mavericks

Glenwood Springs High School product Sharaya Selsor was awarded the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week on Monday — the third time the Colorado Mesa University senior has been given the honor this season.

Selsor averaged 26 points per game in the Mavericks’ two victories over Western New Mexico and New Mexico Highlands this past weekend. The 32 points she scored against Highlands in Mesa’s 81-70 victory in Las Vegas, N.M., was the third time Selsor has scored more than 30 points in a game this season.

Mesa (8-0), one of 12 unbeaten Division II women’s basketball teams in the nation, is ranked No. 5 in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association national poll headed into home games today against Fort Lewis and Saturday against Adams State.

Demons off to Montrose after fifth-place finish in G.J.

Glenwood Springs High School’s girls swimming team took fifth place in the 13-team Tiger Invitational at the El Pomar Natatorium in Grand Junction this past Saturday.

The meet, which served as more of a relay meet, had three top finishers from the Glenwood squad. Among them was the first-place finish from Kendall Vanderhoof, Hannah Stinson, Olivia Ayers and Zoya Petrovska in the 500-yard crescendo relay in 5 minutes, 1.58 seconds. The Demons also placed first in the 400 medley relay in 4:25.96 with team members Hannah Peterson, LJ Fetzko, Vanderhoof and Jessica Tuttle. In the 400 freestyle relay, Glenwood’s Vanderhoof, Fetzko, Stinson and Tuttle topped the field with a time of 3:55.34.

Glenwood also finished third in the 200 butterfly relay in 2:19.86 and the 200 backstroke relay in 2:32.78.

The Demons head next to Montrose for a two-day meet, which runs today through Saturday.
