RIVERTON — Red Devils wrestling battled at the 4A West Regional tournament in Riverton this past weekend, where head coach Larry Wagstaff was named 4A West Conference Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season. Evanston finished third, with team points as follows:



1. Natrona County 203.0

2. Riverton 199.0

3. Evanston 177.5

4. Green River 154.5

5. Casper Kelly Walsh 151.0

6. Rock Springs 87.0



The Herald will provide a more detailed story from the regional tourney in our Friday, Feb. 22 issue, along with previewing this weekend’s state tournament, to be held at the Casper Events Center for Class 2A-4A this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 22 and 23, capping off the high school wrestling season in Wyoming. 

Verification will be sought, but it is believed a fourth place finish at regionals qualifies a wrestler for the state tournament against the top four finishers from the east side of the state, meaning Korbin Wagstaff, fourth at 113 pounds; Tucker Leland, fourth at 120 pounds; Zach Guild, second at 126 pounds; Robby Roundy, second at 132 pounds; Bruce Lester, second at 138 pounds; Batista Covolo, first at 145 pounds; Kyler Wagstaff, second at 152 pounds; Brayton Sanders, third at 160 pounds; Will Kishpaugh, second at 170 pounds; and Eric Sowers, fourth at 220 pounds, are all state-bound this weekend.

One strategy that seemed to pay dividends was the switching of Robby Roundy and Bruce Lester, with Roundy dropping to 132 and Lester moving up a class to replace Lester at 138 pounds. But after the Herald has spoken with the Wagstaff, more details and thoughts will be shared.

The individual results are listed below.
