HS Wrestling: Tigers look for title in 2018

The Grand Junction Tigers qualified nine wrestlers to this weekend State wrestling tournament with six of those being regional champions.

The Tigers didn't win the team title at Class 5A-Region 1 title falling to Brighton, who scored 264 team points to claim the team title.

The state tournament will be a whole different monster with the 16 of the best wrestlers in the state.

"The state tournament is a different ballgame. Regional's was really weak and when you have a weak region like that a team that is more balanced will come out on top. Come state time it should be a different story, " said senior Josiah Rider.

The Tigers will kick off the state tournament on Thursday with the preliminaries round at 7:15 P.M.
