Six members of the Greybull-Basin Athletic Club won their weight classes at the team’s annual tournament held Saturday at Buff Gym in Greybull.
Loomis Alexander, Kyler Winters, Nathaniel Boreen, Colton Farrow, Kody Gotfredson and Tate Clutter were the team’s individual champions.
GBAC had one of the largest teams entered in the tournament, with more than 50 kids competing out of the total field of 171 wresters. In all, 13 teams attended.
Sara Schlattmann, one of the organizers of the event, offered kudos to the volunteers, donors and coaches. “It was a great tournament and went very smoothly thanks to everyone’s help,” she said. “We have a great group of parents who really have given a lot to make this program successful through fundraising and attending practice and tournaments.
GBAC will compete at the Lovell tournament on Saturday. It’ll be the final tournament of the year for those wrestlers who aren’t going on to the state competition, which is scheduled for April 17-19.
