    Default NCAA Wrestling Championships.

    It's one of my favorite ulyearly sporting events. One of the most hard fought championships there is.

    Quite a bit of Colorado connections on this year's tourney. The biggest being Andrew Alirez out of Northern Colorado. Alirez was a 4 time state champ out of Greeley Central who was one of the top 4 recruits in the nation his senior year (all major wrestling sites had him ranked somewhere in the top 4 including one big one that had him as the #1 recruit that year) he decided to forgo all the big school offers and stay at home to attend NCU. He is seeded 2nd but ranked #1 in quite a few sites including Intermat which is probably the biggest wrestling ranking sites.

    Cholton Schultz is a junior from Ponderosa who wrestles heavy weight for Arizona State. He is a returning all American and seeded 5th IIRC.

    Mosha Schwartz is out of Ponderosa and he's a top ten seed.

    Daniel Cardenas is a freshman from Pamona wrestling for Stanford. He won a Pac 12 championship as a freshman and has only lost one match all season, he's a 6th seed.

    There's at least one of the Finesilver brothers still wrestling also. There was 3 brothers total that all wrestled in D1 all from Cherry Creek.

    Also a shout-out to two wrestlers from Adams State who won D2 championships last weekend including Josiah Rider who was born in Rifle and went to HS in GJ. His dad was the last state champion at Rifle before I won mine. He was a much better wrestler than I was though, he lived and breathed that stuff. His son Josiah has now won back to back D2 natl championships. I suspect he'll transfer to a D1 school for his senior year and he'll be a sneaky dark horse type for the D1 tourney next year.

    This explains why so many MMA fighters train grappling in Colorado.

    A lot of world class athletes take advantage of Colorado's unique high altitude training options.

    I saw something about Spencer Lee on twitter yesterday. A vid of his mom having a meltdown after he was beaten went viral which was kind of funny.
