Kremmling, Colorado ” The West Grand High School wrestling team had only two participants at the Hotchkiss Invitational Tournament on dec. 6, but both of those grapplers finished strongly in their respective weight divisions.

A.J. Silva (125 pounds) and Justin Strang (171 pounds) both made it to the finals where they were defeated in the championship round. Each of them earned a second place for their efforts.

Head coach Jeff Matney said he was pleased with the efforts of the two senior wrestlers. Both of them have been working hard in the practice room and are being rewarded for their efforts.

The tournament featured a number of the wrestlers in West Grand’s region and are prospective opponents at the state-qualifying meet that will be held at the end of the season.
