Date posted: February 21, 2014
SHERIDAN — Sheridan High School Bronc Wrestlers had a good showing in the regional tournament held on their home turf Friday.
“It went well. The tournament ran smooth,” head Coach Tyson Shatto said. “We use regionals as a set-up to get our kids to state, so that’s the first thing we’re looking for. It’s hard to judge off of today’s standing where we’re at because there were so few matches.”
Six teams are wrestling in the tournament, which will continue today beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Sheridan High School gym. They wrestled through quarterfinals Friday. Semifinals and wrestlebacks will be held today.
Several Broncs made it to the semis:
• Braxton Cooper at 106 pounds
• Kyle Burton at 113
• Tucker Goss at 120
• Hayden Hastings at 126
• Timmy Cowan at 170
• Cody Delk at 182
• Tory Music at 195
• Dane Chambers at heavyweight
Several more Bronc wrestlers will fight for the opportunity to take third and fourth in wrestlebacks today.
“There’s lots of points to be had, so they’re fighting for the opportunity to go to state and set themselves up well for state,” Shatto said.
Currently, SHS is sitting at third as a team. Gillette is first, and Cheyenne East is second.
State Wrestling will be held next weekend in Casper.
