The Steamboat Springs wrestling team heads into the second day of regional competition with all but one wrestler still alive in the consolation bracket.
No Sailor won an opening-round match, but freshman Ben DeLine responded in his first consolation match at 135 pounds, defeating Glenwood Springs' James Nelson by major decision, 13-5, to move into the second day of competition.
Steamboat's Joey Melius (171 pounds) was the only Steamboat wrestler eliminated Friday.
Everyone else -- Houston Mader (125), Andy Morell (130), A.J. Carmack (140) and Alex Centner (215) -- lost their first matches and received second-round byes.
The second day of the Class 4A Region 3 tournament continues at 9 a.m. today at Montrose High School. The top four place-winners in each weight class will advance to next weekend's 2005 Colorado State Wrestling Championships.
