Thunder Basin Hits the Ground Running in 2022
Thunder Basin flexed their muscles at the Shane Shatto Wrestling Tournament in Douglas with a 2nd place just 4.5 points behind Natrona. Antonio Avila is a returning state champion for the Bolts team as he took the podium at 113. This year, he has moved up to 126 and won the Shatto with a 12-1 win over Colton Coffman from Lusk.
Lane Catlin is another returning state champion and he took the 285-pound crown in Douglas with a pin over Ethan Mack from Wright. The 3rd champion at the Shatto tourney from Thunder Basin was Jais Rose at 145 pounds as he beat a fellow state in Wyatt McDermott from Thermopolis. Rose placed 2nd last year at the state tournament at 132 pounds.
Lance Striefel took 2nd at 120, Cael Porter was 6th at 152, Deyton Johnson was 5th at 160 points, Cort Catlin earned the #4 spot at 170 with Aden Jorgensen taking 2nd at 182. In addition to those guys on this Bolt team, Dillon Glick was 5th at 195 so it was a strong all-around effort.
We had an opportunity to chat with Antonio Avila and Lane Catlin after their championship matches on Saturday. It's nice to end the day on top of the podium!
