Lamar Savage Wrestling Program Captures 5th Consecutive Regional Title

The Lamar High School wrestling team traveled to Englewood High School and competed this past weekend at the 3A Region 3 tournament. The Savages were the only team of the 14 represented at the regional to have a wrestler in all 14 weight classes. And it wasn’t just the number of wrestlers Lamar brought that made them a formidable force in the regional, but it was the quality of wrestling that allowed the Savages to claim their fifth consecutive regional championship. In all, 12 Savages qualified to wrestle at the 3A State Wrestling Tournament at the Pepsi Center in Denver. Four claimed individual regional titles (Ethan Andrade, 120 pounds; Colton Eberhardt, 195 pounds; Bart Gruenloh, 220 pounds; Sy Spitz, 285 pounds). The State Wrestling Tournament will be held February 15-17 with coverage to air live on 93.5 FM “The Curve”.
