2021 State Wrestling 195 LB Championship Matches [VIDEO]
The rightful owner of the 2A 220 pound class over the last couple of years was Logan Cole of Thermopolis. He competed at 195 this season and won another state championship following a 1st period pin of Thomas Howard of Big Piney. Cole only had 20 matches under his belt this season but won 19 of them and looked dominant at the state tournament. Howard, who is a sophomore finished the year at 22-10. Lovell sophomore Zane Collins took 3rd with a pin of Dylan Hagler of Kemmerer. Collins posted a season mark of 17-9 while Hagler went 20-17 as a freshman. Michael Cook of Cokeville took the 5th place medal defeating Josh Pridgeon of Sundance by fall.
Bradley Whitright of Cheyenne East won a state title last year at 220 and moved to 195 this season. He took home some more hardware with a pin of Aragon Garro of Kelly Walsh to cap the season with a record of 40-2. To say he's been terrific on the mat is an understatement. Garro wrapped up the year at 23-9. In 3rd place at 195, this year was Davis Knight of Natrona who was 31-9 this season. He pinned Mayson Erickson of Evanston in the 3rd and 4th place match so Erickson concluded the season at 19-9. Dillon Glick from Thunder Basin took 5th with a pin of Trevor Eldridge of Cheyenne East.
Another guy who was totally superior in his weight class was Lane McBee of Worland. Four matches and four wins en route to the 195-pound crown and an overall record 32-5. McBee didn't take much time to win the title as he pinned Rhiley Grubbs of Torrington in the first period. Grubbs a year ago wrestled at 220 and finished this season with a mark of 22-4. Riverton's Kaden Gantenbein won the 3rd place match by fall over Josh Womack of Newcastle-Upton. Gantenbein won 27 of 30 matches this season while Womack was 24-9. Colter Haws of Big Piney placed this year with a pin over Tony Mickelson of Star Valley.
