The most dominate wrestler in Wyoming this year was Cody Pinkerton of Douglas. The more you watch his work on the mat, the better he looks. Pinkerton wrestled 55 matches this season and won them all which is a remarkable accomplishment. He capped the season with a pin of Carson Olsen of Powell in the 3A 220-pound title match at the 5:02 mark. Pinkerton is a special breed that has a bright future. Olsen, by the way, finished the year at 22-6.
