State Wrestling 145 LB Championships 2-29-20 [VIDEO]
There's no doubt that Analu Benabise of Kelly Walsh is one of the finest wrestlers in the state. He now has won 3 state titles in a row in 4A after a 9-1 win over Kaeden Wilcox of Natrona. So he has 2 championships at 145 and another one at 138. This is a guy who placed at the Cowboy Open at the University of Wyoming earlier this season and finished the year 47-4. Wilcox made a very nice run through the tournament and went 33-11 this season.
There's no doubt that Ridge Briggs of Riverton is one of the finest wrestlers in the state. He now has 3 state titles in a row in 3A after a pin of Hagen Lamoreaux of Lyman at 2:24. Briggs won the 145 title last year, took 3rd in 2018 at 132 and won the 113-pound crown in 2017. Plus he was a Ron Thon champion this season, winning it in front of the home town crowd. Briggs went an astounding 51-2 this year and Lamoreaux was solid as well with a record of 37-10.
Moorcroft has won 8 straight titles in 2A so they get great performances all over the place. Parker Seeley came through with a state championship at 145 thanks to a 9-5 win over Roedy Farrell of Thermopolis. Talk about astounding, Seeley was 51-3 to end his high school career and Farrell who is just a freshman compiled a 29-11 mark for 2020.
