The 2019 2A Region 4 Wrestling Tournament was the place to be for exciting matches as the Rivals would qualify 7 of their athletes for the Big Show next week in Denver. The team scored 137 points to give them a 4th place finish. Rocky Ford would run away with the 1st Place trophy with 232 points, Crowley County was 2nd with 160.5 and Trinidad would place 3rd with 148.
The County Line Rivals wrapped up the regular season with a bang at the Charger Invitational on Saturday in Ordway. Boasting six champions for the day, Coach Uhland’s team finished second with 157.5 points in the field of 18 teams. Edging out our Rivals was the host team, Crowley County, who finished with 159 points. Custer County and Holly tied for 3rd place both with 72 points.
As the season is winding down to the big finish the Rivals have made some great strides to get better with their time on the mat. They made the trip to Lamar on Thursday night to compete with the Indians, both Yuma and the Lamar Savages. County Line would be without 5 of their wrestling for this weeks’ action and that puts a huge dent in the scoring. First the Rivals would go head-to-head against the team from the north getting in six wins but giving up too many open weights to a full team and then going down in 3 matches that could have had led to a better team outcome.

It may still be cold outside as we continue to slowly move through the month of January, but for the Eads Eagles their cold snap has been broken. They finally got that much-needed win, something they haven’t been able do since the very first game of the season in December, when they defeated Kim/Branson on Saturday, 69-60. The win came after a loss to a Wiley team they had a chance to beat but couldn’t contain Wiley’s junior baller Lawrence Lucero losing, 54-45.
