LAFAYETTE -- Fort Lupton's D'mitri Garza-Alarcon wound up second among 138-pounders at the Top of the Rockies wrestling tournament at Centaurus High School.

Two of his three wins were by pinbfall. The third win was an 8-7 decision in the quarterfinals over Secerance's Tommy Thomas. Ponderosa's Brandon Cannon won the weight class championship.

William Alvarado was fourth at 157 pounds. After a first-round bye, Alvarado won his next two matches, then won the consolation semifinal  match against Greeley West's Alex Socher by a major, 11-3 decision. Adams City's Daniel LOng won the third-place contest.

Alex Mata took sixth at 175 pounds. After a quarterfinal-round loss, Mata won twice in the consoilation round to stay alive. Madux Najera of POnona won the fifth-place match by injury default.

Fort Lupton was fourth in the team standings. The Bluedevils were  among 48 high schools from Wyoming, New Mexico and Colorado to send teams to the tournament. It's regarded as one of the tougher tournaments on the prep wrestling calendar. Some say it's even tougher than the state tournament next month at Ball Arena.
