Camp Verde had eight first-place champion wrestlers, four who took second place, one who took third place and one who took fourth place in the 14 weight classes.

The Cowboys also won first place as a team with 300 points, easily outdistancing second-place finisher Yuma Catholic’s 182.5 points. Wickenburg finished third with 144 points followed by Parker with 122 points. Twelve teams competed in the tournament.

“The Division IV, Section I state-qualifying tournament was an awesome time for the Cowboys,” Camp Verde wrestling Head Coach Bob Weir said. “The atmosphere in the CVHS gym was exciting, and the Camp Verde parents and spectators helped electrify the wrestlers to go the extra mile for the victory.”
