The Meeker High School wrestling program made history by winning its eighth state team wrestling title at the 2016 Colorado State Wrestling Championships in the Pepsi Center last weekend in Denver. Meeker senior T.J. Shelton became the 19th wrestler in Colorado history to win four individual state wrestling titles and doing so in such dominate fashion, he was named the 2A Outstanding Wrestler and received two standing ovations for his efforts. Meeker head coach J.C. Watt’s efforts were also recognized as he was named the 2A Coach of the Year after his team was awarded the trophy. Every Meeker state qualifier won a match and scored at least one bonus point for the team. “It truly was a team win,” coach Watt said.
