After a strong showing in Bayfield, we followed up with a strong finish at the always tough Rocky Mountain Invite in Pagosa Springs. Friday night, the Tigers made short work of the feisty Wolverines winning the dual 53-20. The match of the night was freshman Garrett Birzer defeating, in overtime, senior Cody Speece. On Saturday morning, in cold Pagosa Springs, they battled 16 teams, and put together their strongest backside tournament finish to date. After winning 8 of their final 11 matches, they placed second on the strength of 4 Champions. The Junior Varsity got valuable experience at the Demon Round Robin in Durango on the same day, coming away with 3 Champions.
