Skyview wrestler makes history!

Skyview wrestler makes history! 
 
Congratulations to Jaslynn G., of the Skyview Wolverines wrestling team, on making history by becoming one of two female wrestlers EVER to place in the CHSAA State Wrestling Tournament!
 
Jaslynn placed fifth in her weight class after pinning Trevor T. from Pagosa Springs in 53-seconds. In the same afternoon, Jaslynn G. and Valley’s Angel R. became the first two girls ever to place in the 84-year history of the CHSAA State Tournament
 
Jaslynn’s coach, Delfino Rodriguez, said the road to the Colorado State Wrestling Tournament is no easy task for any wrestler.
 
“In order to compete in the Colorado High School State Wrestling Tournament a wrestler must first qualify,” said Rodriguez. “Each high school classification is broken down into four regions, each region having 14 weight classes and 16-person brackets. Jaslynn competed in the CHSAA 3A Region 3 which was probably the toughest region in the 3A classification.”
 
As a team, Skyview finished in the top-20 in class 3A competition. Congratulations to Jaslynn and the entire Skyview Wolverines wrestling team on an impressive season!
