HS Wrestling: Tigers take top spot in rankings

The Grand Junction Tigers are ranked No. 1 in this week's CHSAA Class 5A rankings.

The Tigers have a roster full of some of the best wrestlers in the state including back-to-back state champ Josiah Rider and state runners-up Dylan Martinez and Dawson Collins.

Last season the Tigers finished in second as a team in Class 5A with 141.5 points.

"That makes me go home every night and go to more practices after this or go to the gym after this practice," Collins says. "Just keep pushing myself even harder."

Pomona finished in first at 192.5,.

"We've been close since my freshman year, sophomore we dropped off a little bit, then junior year we took second," Rider says. "Just this constant pressure in the back of your head that we need to do better and we need to get this title for Junction. "

The Tigers will be tested at the Warrior Classic beginning on Friday at 10 A.M.
