The Rye High School Thunderbolts wrestled in their final tournament before regionals in the Center Classic 2020 last Saturday in Center, Colorado. In the 25-tournament event, Rye placed 9th with seven wrestlers competing.

“This was probably the best overall competition we have faced all year,” commented Head Coach Billy Jack Forell. “We had some tough matches and I felt like we are going into regionals, prepared.”

Riley Prichard (113 lbs.) led the Thunderbolts with a 2nd place finish. Prichard had a bye his first round, won a pair of falls, and then lost a fall in the championship to Miguel Sanchez, John Mall. Sanchez will likely be the only wrestler seeded higher than Prichard at Regionals on the 14th-15th. Prichard is 31-9 for the season.

At 120 lbs. Michael Atencio came in 3rd place. Atencio lost a 5-2 decision to the New Mexico wrestler in his weight class. That loss was sandwiched by a bye, and a win by a fall. After the lost decision, Atencio won a fall and won by forfeit in the 3rd place match over Robert Cochran, Hotchkiss. Atencio will likely be the number one seed at regionals.

Cole Miller at 126 lbs. also ran into a New Mexico wrestler half way through his bracket and lost a fall at the 4:45 mark. At the time he was ahead in the scoring but ended up in a cradle. Prior to his loss he had a bye, won a fall, and won a 9-2 decision. After his loss he won a 16-0 technical fall and won a forfeit over Case Buford of Crowley County. Miller has a 34-4 record for the season. Miller also has a good shot at being the number one seed at regionals.
