RANGELY I Rangely High School’s most recent state wrestling champion will also be its most recent head coach. Travis Witherell, who won an individual Colorado state wrestling title wrestling as a senior for the Panthers in 2010, has been named to take over the Panther grapplers in his first year as head coach.
RANGELY I The Rangely Middle School wrestling team competed in Steamboat Springs on Saturday and returned with several placers, including champion Tytus Coombs.
RBC I Only seven Rangely Middle School boys are out for wrestling this season, but the total includes one of the most outstanding wrestlers in the area.
RANGELY I Four Panther wrestlers are headed to state. Rangely Junior High had four placers — including one first-place finisher — at last week’s regional tournament in Fruita, earning them a trip to the state tourney in Denver.
RANGELY I Coaches are always looking for improvement, and Derek Stolworthy liked what he saw. “We did extremely well. We had 10 placers and even though we were among the smallest schools there, we took fourth out of nine teams,” said the Rangely Junior High wrestling coach.
