Local athletes qualify for state
February 14, 2012
Three local athletes have qualified for the Colorado State High School Wrestling Tournament starting on Thursday at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
Leading the way is Middle Park’s Brian Macchione, the defending 3A state champion at 189 pounds (under the previous weight class structure). Macchione, a senior, is undefeated on the season (39-0) and is the top seed in the 195-pound class. He is looking to become only the third wrestler in Middle Park history to win two state titles.
Middle Park sophomore Adam Visconti (30-11) qualified for his second trip to the state meet and will be competing at 120 pounds.
West Grand’s Daniel Terwilliger (16-17) will be the Mustangs lone wrestler competing in the 2A 120-pound class.
Middle Park has qualified 23 athletes for the state high school ski championships on Thursday and Friday at Beaver Creek Resort in Avon and Maloit Park in Minturn.
