Meeker’s Tyler Ilgen was a four-time state qualifier and lost in the state finals to Paonia’s Trevor Smith, who was in Meeker to referee next to his friend, along with meeker state runner-up Jacob Pelloni, Fowler state champion Brandon Grasmick who is now a program director for ERBM, former state qualifier Nick Smith, Barone Middle School coach Todd Morris and Meeker High School wrestler Kesston Hobbs.
