Star Valley Wrestling Team Looks for 7th Consecutive State Title
Star Valley has been the standard-bearer for 3A wrestling for 99 years and day it seems but they have won 6 state titles in a row.
A 7th may be on the horizon for the Braves after a strong showing in the Lander Tournament over the weekend. They had 9 wrestlers place in the top 4 in their respective weight classes with two champions.
Zachary Patterson captured the 182-pound championship in Lander with a pin over Grayson Beaudrie of Cody, so he is 29-0 on the year. At 195, Harrison Hoopes improved to 28-0 with a pin over TK Stinson of Douglas in the title match.
Once again, Star Valley is a well-round and well-grounded team but will be challenged by Douglas and a few others for the 3A state title this season. We chatted with Patterson and Hoopes after the wins on Saturday in Lander. It's one step at a time.
