Mustangs finish 3rd at 81st Annual Colorado State Tournament

The Mustangs closed on another successful season on February 20th by capturing 3rd place in the State tournament team race. The 8 qualifiers were able to score 95.5 team points. Placers include:

106 Mosha Schwartz, 4th place
120 Hunter Matney, 2nd Place
126 Parker Benekas, 4th place
145 Jayden Woodruff, 4th Place
220 Cohlton Schultz, Champion

Congratulations to our Mustangs!

Some interesting facts to close out the season:

In the 21st century, Ponderosa has never finished out of the top 10. We have had at least one wrestler appear in the finals every year since 2000. We have had at least one wrestler finish in the top 3 every year since 1993. If you average our team placement over the past 21 years, it comes out to about 3.6!

Ponderosa would like to thank all of our supporters! Without our great parents, loyal alumni, and cheering fans, we wouldn’t be able to achieve what we have thus far. Thank you, all!
