Gilmore Takes Third

LAFAYETTE | The Wolves finished in 21st place in the field of 33 teams at the "tougher than state" Top Of The Rockies tournament that was held at Centaurus High School on January 18 and 19.

The Wolves Cody Gilmore finished in third place in the 285 pound bracket by defeating Ponderosa's number one ranked Taylor Stam, 4-1, in the consolation match. With no score going into the second period, Stam chose the top position. Gilmore got a reversal and rode Stam out for the rest of the period. Gilmore chose the neutral position to start the third period. He got the takedown and led 4-0 when Stam escaped. The match ended, 4-1. This was the third meeting between Gilmore and Stam in one weeks time. Gilmore lost to Stam in the finals of the Arvada West tournament one week earlier and in the quarter finals at the Top of the Rockies. Gilmore pinned last years 285 pound third place state tournament finisher, Adams City's LeRoy Vigil, to earn the rematch with Stam. The 285 pound final was a rematch of last years 4A state championship bout with the same result. Northridge's Tim Saucedo defeated Ft Morgan's Kyle Graulus.

Grandview's Eric Wilson finished fifth in the 112 pound bracket behind three state champions. Wilson got caught up in the Alamosa tilt and lost to returning state champion and current Reno champion Jesse Meis in the quarter finals. Then he faced Uintah, Utah's Colby Christensen and came away with a one point victory to stay alive on the consolation side. Two rounds later he met up with Broomfield's Gabe Gomez and lost to the 8th place finisher from this year's Ironman tournament and previous second and third place finisher in Colorado's 4A state tournaments. Wilson won the fifth place match by major decision over Ft Lupton's Derek Salinas.
