MEEKER I “It was a pretty tough tournament up there,” Barone Middle School wrestling coach Lee Overton said of the competition at the annual Carl Ramunno Memorial Tournament in Steamboat Springs.
The young Cowboys entered 19 wrestlers in the tournament, including five sixth-graders on the team for the first time in Barone Middle School history.
“I think they had a good time, learning the difference between pee-wee wrestling and middle school wrestling,” head coach Lee Overton said. “I think it was a good experience for them.”
Barone Middle School had three wrestlers advance to the championship match, but none were able to win.
Henderson and his teammates defeated the Ramsl as well as the Rangely Panthers in a triangular meet on Tuesday. All three teams will be in Oak Creek on  Saturday for a tournament, and Meeker will host the final tournament of the season March 22.
