Mead’s wrestling team takes on the Berthoud Spartans

Meads wrestlers win against Berthoud by one point


Caleb Domenico, a wrestler here at mead, takes on the state competitor from Berthoud.

With the Wrestling year halfway through, the wrestlers here at Mead are showing up to every match ready for action.

The Mavs are well known for a great wrestling program after sending five boys to state last season. We are now the hosts of the districts women wrestling team. The Mavs are taking on the Berthoud Spartans. All eyes are on Berthoud’s state Competitor, and Mavs state competitors, Emilio Chavez, Roman Salaz, and Brady Borger.

It all started out with a pin by Tommy Tatham. After the great start, the Mavs scored 24 consecutive points. Emilio Chavez, the team captain, shared with us saying “I’m very proud on how our program has stayed strong even after losing some key seniors, two being our state competitors, and we still came out with a big win tonight against another great wrestling program.”

Emilio had a very well fought match but ended up losing by a couple points, he came very close to getting the pin but just ran out of time. We also spoke to one of seniors on the team, Wyatt Sears. “This is my first year wrestling and I couldn’t be more happy that I joined. The wrestling program was very accepting of me. I’m starting to get the hang of this sport and I’m happy to be apart of the Mav’s wrestling family.”

On the sides of the mats you could tell that the Mavs wrestling team was very supportive of whoever was on the mat. Once the final match came up, in which they needed a pin to win, the wrestlers were all on their feet supporting their fellow wrestler. After several pins and many points scored by each school the Mavericks did end up on top 35-34.
