Prep wrestling: Three Demons still unbeaten in rout of Huskies
EDWARDS — It’s been a while since Glenwood Springs High School has had three wrestlers who started the season unbeaten in their first 10 matches.
“It’s definitely been a while,” said Glenwood assistant coach Miles Cook, who had three wrestlers improve to 10-0 during the Demons’ 71-12 dual victory against Battle Mountain on Wednesday. “We should be challenged pretty soon though.”
The Demons’ three unbeaten wrestlers are Myles Wilson, who wrestled up a weight class to 160 pounds and won by technical fall against Wyatt Harwood of Battle Mountain. Also moving to 10-0 was Cristian Gonzalez after his first-round pin of Nicholas Hancock at 195 pounds, and Riley Prough, who pinned Mario DeLara at the 1 minute, 38-second mark at 120 pounds.
All three are ranked in Tim Yount’s On The Mat Class 4A statewide rankings. Wilson is ranked No. 2 at 152 pounds, Gonzalez is ranked No. 3 at 195 and Prough is No. 8 at 120.
Also posting a big win for Glenwood was Juan Felan at 132, who pinned Joseph Ramirez at the 1:32 mark in his first career varsity match.
“His eyes really lit up after he got that,” Cook said. “That was a great thing to see.”
Cook was also happy with a victory from Jose Diaz at 170, stating that he’s battled hard all season prior to his second-round pin on Wednesday. He also gave kudos for the effort given by Glenwood’s Larry Flores, who lost by pin at the 5:21 mark to Jesus Morales at 126 pounds.
Glenwood continues tournament competition on Saturday when the Demons wrestle at the Weld Central Invitational.
