After a thrilling quadrangular in Oak Creek on Thursday and tough, but productive, tournaments Saturday, the Hayden and Soroco high school wrestling teams head into this week’s regional tournaments with plenty of confidence.

Bulldogs, Rams well-matched in Friday night dual; Soroco to compete at Paonia
The Dog Pound of Moffat County High School has seen its last wrestling mat rolled out for competition this season, but the last home event of the year was a memorable one, albeit quick. MCHS wrestlers hosted Soroco Friday for the Bulldogs’ final dual in front of a home crowd, Moffat County taking the win, 53-15.
The Rams led at half and were tied heading into the fourth quarter but couldn’t slip by Paonia, the No. 1 ranked Class 2A team in the state.
The clash between the Rams and the Eagles makes for the most interesting matchup of the weekend. Soroco has been in the midst of perhaps the school’s best ever girls basketball run for the last two years, but both seasons have ended in the regional championship with losses against Paonia.
The Soroco High School wrestling team came away from an Eagle Valley tournament with a pair of championships and plenty of proof their team is improving, coach Jay Whaley said.
