Rangely looks toward regionals

RANGELY I So much for a tuneup before regionals.
Tuesday’s dual against top-ranked Altamont, Utah, was canceled. So next up for Rangely’s wrestling team is the regional tournament Feb. 12-13 in Palisade.
The Altamont dual was canceled due to cases of infantigo and ringworm that had infected the Utah team.
“That would’ve been a good one,” Rangely coach Jeff LeBleu said of the much-anticipated Altamont dual. “But I’m looking forward to getting ready for regionals.”
LeBleu likes his team’s chances heading toward the state tournament.
“Last year I thought was my best team,” said LeBleu, who is in his 11th season as coach. “I think we’re pretty comparable to last year, and maybe even a little better.”
LeBleu missed practice this week due to a death in the family.
“I’d like to thank assistant coach Andy Shaffer for covering for me,” said LeBleu, who traveled to Oklahoma for the funeral.
