Denver-Tripoli captures class 2A title

Posted:

The Titans finished on top.  For the second time in 3 years, Denver-Tripoli captured the class 2A wrestling championship.

The Titans came into finals night with a half point lead over second place Davenport Assumption, and a 1 point lead over West Delaware in third.  D-T put it away in the end as Dylan Peters and Brandon Sorenson each captured the third state titles of their career.  Peters needed just 37 seconds to pin Tony DeVriese of Assumption in what turned out to be the deciding match.

Denver-Tripoli brought just 6 wrestlers to the state tournament, but won the title on the 2 champions, while Chase Shedenhelm, Cory Chapin, and Garrett Smith all finished in the runner-up spot.
